Life at Levin Ginsburg

Levin Ginsburg provides a warm, professional environment where professionals and staff advance their careers while enjoying the workplace.  Our team members share their LG experiences: Jonathan Weis Partner I completed law school in 1996 and began my career at Levin Ginsburg.  I have been here ever since. First and foremost, I really enjoy the people here.  We are very collegial and team-oriented.  For me, the firm is a great fit because it provides a unique business environment with a balance of very large litigation and transactional matters along with a strong entrepreneurial base of work for family owned businesses, mid-market companies, and individuals.  In all of this, we focus on developing close, long-term relationships with our clients in order to provide the highest quality work in cost effective/value added fashion. Dean Tatooles Partner I practiced in a larger firm environment since 1998.  I joined Levin Ginsburg in June 2011 and haven’t looked back.  The combination of a smaller, more team oriented practice has enabled me to be more personally responsive to clients while continuing to provide each with superior quality work product.  Levin Ginsburg attorneys and staff work together on an equal playing field, each being accountable for achieving our firm’s key results and client goals.  Simply put, the firm is a wonderful place to work! Kristen Hengtgen Associate I began clerking at Levin Ginsburg before my final year of law school and joined the firm as an associate after graduation. At LG I am exposed to a wide variety of work covering many diverse aspects of my practice areas. But what makes this a unique place to work is the team environment. As an associate, the partners take a genuine interest in my professional development, encourage me to take on challenging work, and are always approachable with questions and to discuss legal or business issues. Karen Pflanzer Corporate Paralegal I’ve been with Levin Ginsburg since 1990 and can honestly say that I enjoy the people I work with.  The atmosphere here is professional yet we also have a lot of fun.  The partners encourage our personal development and if you show any interest, they will serve as mentors.  There is an open-door policy that encourages communication and brings team spirit to life.  These reasons and plenty more are why I have been here so long. Karen D. Hammersmith, CLM, SPHR Legal Administrator We believe in what we do.  It is our passion.  This shows in everything we do from the way we answer our phones to the consistency and excellence of our work product.  As a firm, our mission is to provide the highest level of client service.  To that end, we work together to protect the best interests of our clients.  Our people are deeply committed to that philosophy, to our clients, and to each other.

Lawyer Opportunities

Our clients and our counterparts tell us that our lawyers are our greatest asset.  We understand the business realities clients face as well as their legal implications and we work with our clients as a legal advisor and business consultant. When looking to add professionals to our firm, we focus on a combination of skill, experience, and character. Continuous ongoing training is critical to the success and development of each Levin Ginsburg attorney.  We assign a senior attorney to mentor each LG attorney.  This allows associates to learn hands-on while under the tutelage of an experienced member of the firm, thus affording less experienced lawyers the opportunity to appear in court, draft sophisticated documents, participate in depositions, and communicate with clients. Associates are given prompt feedback directly from the attorneys with whom they work.  In addition, we schedule at least one formal performance evaluation each year.  By joining our firm, you become a member of the team. We derive satisfaction from each employee’s efforts and accomplishments. Levin Ginsburg encourages attorneys to join bar association groups, business associations, and to attend continuing legal education seminars.  Within the firm, we analyze interesting and new developments in the law at regularly scheduled meetings, which sometimes are practice group focused.  Regular marketing meetings are held as well.

Staff Opportunities

Our clients rely on each and every Levin Ginsburg team member.  Adding valuable personnel to our team of legal secretaries, paralegals, and office staff is paramount. We care about our employees and their families and support them with comprehensive employee benefits, including major medical health insurance, 401(k) plan contributions, and profit sharing. As an employee of the firm, you become a member of our family.  Our team members are respected, treated fairly, listened to, and involved. Friendly relationships, balanced personal lives and a non-threatening and stress-reduced environment make working at Levin Ginsburg enjoyable and productive.
