RECRUITING

LGWM seeks to attract and retain a diverse group of quality legal talent. LGWM believes in hiring only the most competent Associates interested in a litigation practice. LGWM assists our Associates in developing their skills by providing monthly Associate training sessions and having them work directly with experienced litigation attorneys. LGWM evaluates all Associates twice a year to encourage professional growth.

RECRUITING SCHEDULE

LGWM regularly interviews second-year law students on-campus at the University of Alabama and the Cumberland School of Law. LGWM accepts resumes from students who attend schools we do not visit. For more information, contact our recruiting shareholder, John Webb, at (850) 777-3322 or jwebb@lgwmlaw.com.

SUMMER PROGRAM

Our goal at LGWM is to provide Summer Associates with a personal experience in the practice of law. LGWM involves its Summer Associates in every aspect of our cases, including client meetings, interviewing witnesses, legal research, assisting with deposition preparation and attending depositions, writing motions and briefs, and attending hearings, mediations, arbitrations, and trials. We believe at LGWM that it is important for our Summer Associates to get to know our attorneys and their families. The Firm plans summer activities to provide Summer Associates an opportunity to get to know our lawyers and their families. The summer program at LGWM takes place during the first six weeks of the summer, from May through June, of each year.

LATERAL HIRES

LGWM traditionally hires first year associates from our Summer Program. However, as needs arise, LGWM also makes lateral offers to candidates with degrees from accredited law schools, with experience in litigation, who exhibit strong research and writing skills, and have experience in oral advocacy. Resumes for lateral hires should be directed to our recruiting shareholder, John Webb, at jwebb@lgwmlaw.com.
