Careers



Roetzel is a full-service law firm dedicated to the success of our clients, and to the hiring, training, mentoring, retention, and professional development of our attorneys and staff. In each of our 13 offices located throughout Ohio and Florida and in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C., we actively recruit and hire individuals who possess a strong work ethic, effective problem solving skills and Roetzel cultural traits. We look for "good people" - people who genuinely embrace collegiality, are dedicated to teamwork, demonstrate a high level of integrity, and value the importance of developing strong relationships within the firm and with our clients.

Roetzel exemplifies a large firm environment with a small firm culture. Our firm has the resources, capabilities, breadth, and depth of a large law firm, yet still maintains a focus on individuality. Our firm-wide Quality of Life Committee contributes to that collegiality and emphasizes creating an enjoyable work environment at Roetzel.

We recognize and value the fact that our greatest asset is our people, and we operate by the philosophy that each person's contributions are valued and respected. Unlike many other large law firms, collegial relationships between partners, associates, and staff are encouraged and cultivated at Roetzel. We know each other as professional colleagues and as friends. Within the firm, this translates into personal job satisfaction.

All new employees go through an orientation called "Inside Roetzel" in which they are introduced to the firm's operations and administrative procedures. It includes training on computers, research, conflicts, and ethics, as well as provides an overview of the firm's human resources, finance, and marketing departments.

We invite you to take a look at our hiring programs and the many ways we foster the professional growth of our firm's dynamic personnel.

Quality of Life Committee
In an industry known for quality of life issues within the work environment, Roetzel stands apart from many law firms. Formation of our Quality of Life Committee was a proactive way to prevent our firm from facing the same problems. Our attorneys and staff work hard, but also appreciate the value of making work an enjoyable place to be during the day.

The two main goals of the Quality of Life Committee are to provide services and events that promote fellowship among our employees, as well as create a work environment which emphasizes the "personal" side of business. As a result, the Committee sponsors a variety of events and provides services throughout the year including: fellowship lunches; TGIF parties; office breakfasts; chair massages; employee family events (such as hayrides, picnics, amusement park outings, and bowling); flu shots for employee health screenings; a children's holiday party; and office holiday parties.
