A great law firm is made up of great people. Bernkopf is built of successful and steadfast self-starters―knowledgeable lawyers and professionals who are independent thinkers, hard-driving, entrepreneurial, and business-minded.

We are looking for like-minded individuals who share our dedication to our clients and desire intellectually stimulating work in a casual, friendly environment. Bernkopf firm recruits law students and lawyers who are value-oriented and collaborative. If you possess these personal and aspirational attributes, please contact us to learn more.

Do you have what it takes to be a trial lawyer?  Are you highly motivated and willing to work hard?  Do you have the desire to learn how to be an effective advocate?  If the answer to all these questions is an unconditional “Yes,” then we’d like to talk to you.

Bernkopf Goodman LLP, a Boston law firm since 1894, is inviting exceptional attorneys to join its Litigation Practice Group.  In addition to being an independent, highly intelligent thinker, candidates will need to be hard-driving, entrepreneurial, business-minded, and enjoy working independently and collaboratively. Candidates will need to have excellent law school credentials and substantive experience in various aspects of litigation.

The ideal candidate will have 1 – 3 years post-law school experience and must be members in good standing of the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers.  While some deposition and courtroom experience is preferred, we are interested in someone who has excellent research, analytical and proven legal writing skills, is a quick learner and is eager to be trained by experienced trial practitioners.

If you meet these qualifications, please send a copy of your resume, along with writing samples that you have drafted to Kathy Gailes at All submissions will be kept confidential.

As a real estate attorney with Bernkopf, you will actively participate in a stimulating mix of work, representing owners, developers, and lenders.
