  • Core values fit
  • Potential for growth and success

Please email to express interest, ask questions, and get the process started today! 


GLF is located in Chagrin Falls at 100 North Main Street, Suite 300. Selected candidates will receive an office, furniture, phone, full IT support, secretarial/paralegal/law clerk support (as available), email, research databases, marketing assistance, and professional development coaching, all cost-free, for up to one year, provided that the candidate’s self-generated benchmarks are met (or are excused).  Prior to acceptance, candidates will execute a rent-free sublease and an of counsel agreement with GLF to address conflicts, confidentiality, fee sharing, and other ethical restrictions.
