Not Your Traditional Law Job

No burnout. No pigeonholes. No stuffy old-time lawyers (yet!). Instead, Hertz Schram PC is a progressive law firm with a decidedly fresh and entrepreneurial spirit, a place where open minds, creativity and fresh ideas turn new lawyers into great lawyers.

If you're highly motivated, hardworking and creative; if you have excellent analytical skills, superior writing ability and true initiative; if you're genuine, personable and have a good sense of humor, then consider yourself a candidate for employment at Hertz Schram PC Positions include associate attorneys, summer associates (full time), law clerks (part time, year round) and paralegals.

The Work

As an attorney with Hertz Schram, you will represent many of our country's and region's most respected companies. Their complex issues require tremendous legal skill and offer associates endless opportunity to participate in highly sophisticated, "big league" casework and transactions. That means significant, hands-on responsibility, direct client contact and exposure to a wide variety of practice areas — those things that allow you to not only excel, but also to grow, be rewarded and become integral to the future of the firm.

The Training

Of course, becoming a great lawyer requires learning from the best — that is, from attorneys at the forefront of their profession whose education, skill and experience set them apart. Proudly, at Hertz Schram it is those very attorneys who will take a vested interest in you and are committed to providing the solid training and mentoring you will need to go far. Our goal is to make you the "full package." What's more, we will support your continuing legal education.

At the same time, we encourage young attorneys to develop their own practices and establish their own individual worth. Entrepreneurial and business-generating activity is highly valued at the firm, with the support and resources in place to help make those efforts successful.

The Culture

We are extremely proud of the atmosphere we have cultivated at the firm. We are hardworking, yet relaxed both professionally and socially.

An informal atmosphere of respect, nurturing and even humor makes us unique among law firms. Naturally, this climate results in very little turnover and the notion that law can actually be fun! Best of all, unlike the typical "sweat shop," we understand that life exists outside the firm's walls.

The Rewards

Although we can't promise a firm-issued BMW upon signing or the highest first-year salary in the Detroit Metro area, compensation at Hertz Schram is generous. Basically, as you distinguish yourself and add value to the firm, it will come back to you.

Performance reviews are conducted biannually, and annual salary increases and bonuses are given commensurate with your performance. Every partner and associate is assessed on the same criteria.

Benefits include a 401(k) plan, a discretionary profit-sharing plan, health insurance, malpractice insurance, bar and other memberships, an expense account for business promotion, continuing legal education, a flexible partnership track, great social events and more.
