Family Law Attorney
Company: New Leaf Family
Posted on: November 22, 2021
We're New Leaf Family, and we might be looking for you. It is
our hope that you have also been looking for us. We're not like
other family law firms. We intentionally have built this firm to be
different for our team, different for clients, different from other
lawyers to the courts, and to the public. From the ground up, we
have built the family law firm we always wished existed when we
There is a better way to practice Family Law.
That is the premise of the New Leaf Family. If you agree, you may
want to read on! If not ... it is perfectly OK to move on.
Doing things differently should get you excited.
We're looking for an attorney that wants to join us in our mission
to completely change the way Family Law is practiced. We believe
that Family Law firms should be focused on helping clients
transition into a life more fully lived, and not in conflict.
"We empower clients to make the best possible decisions for
themselves and their family." Those are the words we live by. We
invest in getting to know clients, and in helping them to know
themselves, and what they want as a result of the situation that
brought them to us.
In order to do this, we need lawyers that are aligned with this
mission, good with clients, and unafraid to stand up for our
clients before any tribunal. While we do not believe that the court
is the best place to resolve the disputes in which our clients may
be engaged, we do believe that the best way to bring the decision
back to clients is to be unafraid to advocate for them in the best
We accomplish that by working to empower clients to make the best
decisions they can for themselves and their families. We meet
clients in times of family conflict or transition, and we then
assist them to make the transition in a positive manner, toward the
life they want. We emphasize growth over conflict. We help clients
move toward a new life, not just flee the one they're in.
This is not a typical family law firm.
The work you do will directly contribute to work that helps clients
in very real ways.--
The founders of New Leaf believe that:
--- Each client is best suited to determine what he/she wants in
the next chapter of their life
--- We can better serve clients by helping them build the future
that they want, instead of imposing the "traditional" family law
--- That the members of our team thrive in an environment focused
on empowering clientsWe are looking for family law attorneys, with
experience, who would like to work with a team that believes as we
do, and who want to reduce the attorney-induced drama needless
escalation of the conflict, and focus instead on building a future
with and for clients.The system as practiced in many firms seems
designed to wear down the clients, and the attorneys. There is a
better way of doing things, so that the balance, most days, have
you feeling awesome about how much you are positively affecting
people's lives. We can't eliminate the tough days ... we're not
magicians ... but we are on a mission, and that makes it a lot more
fun!You are committed, above all, and in everything we do, to an
excellent experience for clients.If you're still reading this, and
believe this might be a role for you, let me tell you about us. We
are combining our founders' talents of running successful law
firms, with the experience of having built law firms, including a
very successful family law practice, and wanting to do it again
(and again.)We are able to serve clients more fully, and more
efficiently, bringing family law services to people who have been
scared away by the high, and unpredictable costs of family law
firms led by trial lawyers who can be more interested in winning,
than in achieving a great outcome for their clients.When you apply,
please briefly let us know why this role, in particular, gets you
excited... This is key. Don't skip it! (you will be prompted
separately to answer this question)We look forward to hearing from
you!$90,000 - $110,000 yearly (D.O.E.)+ incentives+ health
insurance upon eligibility(A motivated attorney will make in excess
of $135K with us.)
You are experienced, but not "set in your ways."
--- You will help clients to develop and articulate a vision of the
future they are working to achieve and prepare a strategy that
helps them to achieve it. We believe that we should not impose what
we see as "the solution" onto clients' lives. Key responsibilities
as an attorney with New Leaf Family are to:
We operate as a team. In this role you get to be the captain of a
team of attorneys, paralegals, assistants, coaches, counselors, and
more. We are all focused on empowering clients to navigate change
and conflict in their family lives.
--- Listen. You have experience ... and it will help you hear
what's important. But you also know that it is important for the
client to tell their story.
--- Understand. Clients will tell you, (and you will help them
tell) about what they need, beyond what they need in court or
litigation. You are going to help them to see a vision of where
they want to be, not just what they're leaving behind.
--- Empower. You must be dedicated to empowering our clients to
make the best decisions for themselves and their families. You will
empower them to build their futures.
--- Explain. We have experience in the ways of family law that our
clients do not have. In many circumstances, we have life
experiences they do not have. Our clients want (and need) to know
the options from which they are choosing. We empower them by
helping them be aware of their choices.
--- Defend. Stand up for clients in forums that are unfamiliar to
them. You will be ready, willing, and able to advocate for clients
in places where our expertise can shine, including negotiations,
mediation, litigation, trial, etc
--- Align. Through understanding, you will make sure that our
actions move the client in the direction toward their vision.
--- Elevate. We help our clients best when we remain objective, and
stay in our space where we are able to see their situation, their
options, and their vision more clearly than they can. From there we
can lift them up. If we get down into the drama, then we are much
less help to them.
--- Serve. Assist the whole client. You will put clients in touch
with additional resources, both inside and outside New Leaf. These
could be closely affiliated, like parenting coordinators, divorce
coaches, and financial planners, to other resources that clients
may need, like real estate brokers, car dealers, personal trainers,
or makeover artists.
--- Attract. Bring more people into New Leaf Family. You will be a
positive ambassador for the work of the firm, and attract clients,
and colleagues alike.
--- Lead. Be a leader in the legal community. Be a leader among our
team, and help us grow and attract more lawyers (and other
professionals) like you.
--- Collaborate. You will be a strong member of a distributed team.
We don't all meet in person too often, so being able to be a strong
team member in a remote work setting is crucial.
--- Self-Care. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of
You will do your part to bring effective conflict resolution
resources to more people, by being effective in what you do with
New Leaf Family, and letting our light shine!
First and foremost, you have a passion for empowering clients
through their current family conflict, toward a future that they
may not (yet) clearly see. Next, you are excited about the prospect
of doing this --- differently! The remainder of qualifications
doesn't matter if you don't have this! (But they are still
essential if you do.) You are the right person if you are:
--- Skilled in the craft of family law, but not set in the deeply
worn grooves of the "system" that might not be serving clients
--- Experienced. We need you to have a minimum of 5 years of
experience in Colorado Family Law; (please don't apply for this
role if you don't. It will waste your time, and ours.) We will be
posting roles for less experienced attorneys, soon! Stay tuned!
--- Creative. We want you to find joy in building creative
solutions ... sometimes in the law ... often beyond it.
--- Empathic. We want you to have a strong connection with clients,
with the ability to hear their hopes, dreams, and desires as well
as deliver difficult truths to them.
--- Ethical. We shouldn't have to write this, but a strong ethical
compass is essential in our work.
--- Collaborative. In this world, it is important to have
experience, and success working collaboratively with a team ....
even when remote. You should enjoy working with a team ... but also
--- Independent. This may seem contrary to being collaborative, but
it is not. You must be able to work independently, yet also
comfortable with reaching out for assistance, and knowing when to
--- Tech-friendly. We work hard to make our practice efficient and
cost-effective for clients. We want you to be proficient and
self-sufficient with technology that facilitates working with a
distributed team and servicing clients in ways most convenient to
