Meyer, Hendricks and Bivens offers an exciting and challenging career for attorneys of all ages and experience. Our complex and diverse practice affords our attorneys with the opportunity to practice in various types of litigation and to represent an array of clients as both plaintiffs and defendants. We typically hire attorneys as summer associates with the goal of building our firm from the ground up. For information about our summer associate program, please look at our Summer Associate Program link. The firm also hires experienced attorneys at both the associate and member level from time to time when we have a need to expand and when the applicant has demonstrated exceptional performance in his or her legal career.

The firm has three levels of employment for attorneys: associates; non-equity members; and shareholders. Although no set timetable exists for advancement to shareholder, associates historically have been considered for non-equity membership after 6-8 years of practice. Judicial clerkships are not considered practice, although salary consideration is given for time spent up to a year as a judicial clerk after graduation. Non-equity members can expect to be considered for shareholder status after two years. Non-equity members participate in firm management but do not share in profits beyond discretionary bonuses.

Firm benefits for associate attorneys include full medical, dental and vision coverage for the attorney and his/her dependents; a 401(k) retirement plan in which the firm matches employee contributions and a profit-sharing plan that vests at the rate of 20% per year; covered parking; payment of professional dues and CLE costs; group life and long-term disability plans; and a Section 125 flexible spending plan, which allows use of pre-tax dollars to pay child care and uncovered medical expenses. Non-equity members also receive a cell phone allowance; reserved parking; and personal, portable long-term disability insurance.

Associate compensation is based on years of practice, with credit for judicial clerkships. Associates who bill at least 1950 hours are eligible for a discretionary year-end bonus. Non-equity members' compensation is decided by a compensation committee that looks at personal productivity and business credits (for generation and/or management of cases) as the principal factors in deciding compensation.
