Getman Law Office

Getman Law Office is seeking a newly admitted attorney to assist in
handling the firm's growing practice. The firm represents employees
only, primarily in overtime pay, minimum wage, and other wage violation
cases. We handle individual, class and collective actions. Most of our
litigation is in federal court. We regularly sue multi-national and
Fortune 500 companies, as well as smaller companies and governments. We
litigate around the country.

The firm operates on a legal-services model. We do not charge for
consultations; nor do we charge clients retainer fees or on-going hourly
rates. We also advance all costs. The firm is paid on a contingent basis
when we are successful. This enables us to represent a sizable low and
middle income population. The firm is proud to handle many cases for
undocumented and documented immigrants.

An attorney with the firm needs to have a strong commitment to righting
wrongs, strong interpersonal skills with diverse clients, an interest in
both high and low stakes litigation, a tolerance for inevitable conflict
with opposing counsel and an ability to navigate complex litigation
procedure. The position will include salary, benefits and commission
depending on experience. (People interested primarily in the money
should go work for a management-side firm.)

The firm is collegial. We are three current attorneys and four
paralegals working out of a circa 1790 Dutch stone house in New Paltz,
NY, a small but diverse community set on the side of the Shawangunk
Ridge of the Appalachian Mountains. New Paltz is adjacent to thousands
of acres of premier nature preserves and state parks offering some of
the best hiking, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking and other outdoor
activities on the East Coast. We are a 10 minute drive to the Hudson
River. SUNY New Paltz adds all the advantages of a college town. The
firm is also an hour and a half from New York City and Albany.

Getman Law Office is an equal opportunity employer and will not
discriminate against any applicant on the basis of race, color, creed,
religion, sex, national origin, disability, political belief, marital or
familial status, age, or sexual orientation. We value diversity. Spanish
fluency would be helpful, but is not required.

If interested, send resume, writing sample and three references to Dan
Getman, Getman Law Office, 9 Paradies Lane, New Paltz, NY 12561 or fax
to 845-255-8649 (no phone calls to our main office lines please). Email:
