Services for Employers

Have you or your firm ever considered launching a low-cost 
Apprenticeship Program?

Here's the idea:

For firms that no longer hire right out of law school or no longer have summer associate programs, apprenticeship programs for new attorneys (or just one apprentice) are a win-win.  

As an apprentice, a new attorney would be required to bill clients for some of her time (60% is the common percentage). The remainder of her time would be non-billable - doing pro bono work, co-authoring legal articles, and/or attending client meetings, court proceedings or closings. The selected apprentice would be paid a "partial salary" for the apprentice year. At the close of the year, the firm would decide whether to make an offer of full time employment.

Here are the benefits:  The firm has a honeymoon period with an outstanding recent graduate, gets to train him, receives great PR, and then has the option whether to hire. The apprentice receives training, prestige and some measure of pay. This is all done in a cost-effective way, adopting the medical school-to-practice model.  

If you or any members of your firm may be interested in working with an apprentice, please contact Nancy to discuss.

"Nancy truly 'gets it.'  

We recently hired a candidate through Nancy. She clearly understood FVLD’s culture and our well-rounded service-oriented approach to solving clients' matters; she identified a candidate that fit in well on his very first day. 

Nancy implicitly knew what we needed and she delivered in a timely and cost-effective manner.
