Join our team

We like people who can handle themselves and their own cases. We love leaders, entrepreneurs, and self-made people who know how to balance their work with the rest of their life. People who live on pressure and the thrill of the chase. People who welcome the occasional game of ping pong at 3:37 (a.m. or p.m.) on a Thursday the day before a mediation of a $200 million case. You in? Good. We're hiring. Check out our benefits, read up on our values, and then find your job.

We care about our people

We work hard to make sure you have the best care and resources to succeed, both inside and outside Edelson. Here’s some of what we offer:

  • Eat healthy

    Our kitchens are stocked and lunches are catered so you’ll have meals and snacks when you need them.

  • Plan for your future

    Our competitive matching retirement plans help you plan for your future.

  • Be healthy

    We support all of your health activities so we offer generous fitness allowances to make it easier (on your pocketbook) to hit the gym.

  • Take time off when you need

    Need time away from work? Take the time you need. We don’t count. In fact, you must take at least two weeks of vacation every year.

  • Live healthy

    Eating healthy and being active is just part of the puzzle. We also offer premium medical, dental, and vision insurance to keep you and your family healthy.

  • Wear what you want

    We want to you to be as comfortable as possible at the firm, so ditch the suit (unless you’re in Court).

  • New parents

    It's important to take the time to bond with your new family, without having to worry about your finances. We offer 4 months full paid leave, with an additional 1 month half pay, and 1 month unpaid when you have a baby.

  • Office outings

    We're actually friends outside of the office. We regularly take trips to the movies, play golf, and have a firm volleyball team that plays in the community weekly.
