Applying to be an Attorney

Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP recognizes that even the most junior lawyers have a tremendous amount to offer and expects attorneys at all levels to shoulder significant responsibility. Our application process is rigorous: special attention is given to writing excellence and litigation know-how. We consider applications throughout the year and hire on a regular basis.

The Firm often hires individuals with 0-3 years of experience to serve as litigation fellows, and this is a way stand-out summer associates come into the Firm after their law school graduation. The litigation fellowships provide new lawyers a one or two-year opportunity to gain extensive litigation experience. Our fellows play significant roles in our litigation: engaging directly with clients and opposing counsel, briefing discovery motions and other major filings, and taking and defending depositions. Many fellows stay on at the Firm to become associates.

Sanford Heisler Sharp is currently accepting applications for Summer Associates and Litigation Fellows who are able to start working in summer of 2021. We are no longer accepting applications for 2020.

To apply for one of our available positions, please email your cover letter, resume, law school transcript, references, and two writing samples to Please use “2021 [Position] Application for the [Office(s) where you would like to work]” as your email’s subject line. All materials attached to your email should be in Word or PDF.” The Firm values a diverse team and strongly encourages minority candidates to apply.
