Equal Opportunity Employer
      • Completing a clerkship? Finishing law school? We encourage you to consider applying for a position with Hangley Aronchick. We think we can offer a career path that isn’t available in most cities or with most law firms.

        • If you are a former law clerk, you’ll feel right at home at our firm. A majority of our lawyers clerked on federal district or circuit courts; one clerked on the United States Supreme Court, two clerked for the state Supreme Court, and 13 clerked on a United States Court of Appeals.
        • Hangley Aronchick lawyers include former Philadelphia City Solicitors; a past Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association; current and former law school professors; fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, American College of Bankruptcy Lawyers, and American College of Real Estate Lawyers; members of the American Law Institute and American Bankruptcy Institute; and leaders of inns of court and the American Bar Association Sections of Litigation and Environment, Energy and Resources.
        • Large firm litigators can spend their entire careers in discovery and motion practice without ever seeing a judge, a jury, or the inside of a courtroom. That’s not the case at Hangley Aronchick; our younger associates serve as co-counsel (and sometimes as lead counsel) in cases that go to trial or evidentiary hearing in both state and federal courts. Our younger lawyers also frequently serve as second chair or co-lead counsel on cases.
        • If you choose to apply, we prefer that you submit your application electronically here. If you have any questions about our firm or the hiring process, please feel free to contact the Co-Chairs of our Hiring Committee, Dan Segal and Michele Fenkel. You are also welcome to contact any of our other lawyers – associates to shareholders — and ask them what they do, how they like it here, and whether they think this might be the place for you.

      • It is not unusual for an attorney to arrive at Hangley Aronchick after starting his or her legal career someplace else. We are proud of our tradition of hiring highly qualified lateral applicants. Whether you find yourself looking for a position at our firm because you are moving into private practice from the public sector, relocating to our area, or are just ready for a change, we have a lot to offer.

        • Knowing the value of peer approval, we take pride in the fact that major law firms throughout the country regularly engage us when (as happens more and more frequently these days) they are named as defendants in high-risk, high-profile cases. We even represented the Pennsylvania Bar Association (in effect, the entire lawyer population of our state) when its judicial candidate evaluation process was attacked in the courts.
        • Many of our lawyers have spent time working in the public sector. In addition, a majority of our lawyers clerked on federal district or circuit courts, and one clerked on the United States Supreme Court.
        • Many of our attorneys are also veterans of larger law firms who got tired of the downsides of many big firms: bureaucracy, lack of meaningful work experience, and lack of respect for life outside of work.
        • Our lawyers have also served the community. We have on our roster a past Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association; current and former law school professors; fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, American College of Bankruptcy Lawyers, and American College of Real Estate Lawyers; members of the American Law Institute and American Bankruptcy Institute; and leaders of inns of court and the American Bar Association Sections of Litigation and Environment, Energy and Resources.
        • To have the kind of practice we have, and to provide these sorts of opportunities, Hangley Aronchick has to attract the very best candidates. Take a look at our attorney profiles, and we think you’ll agree that we’ve done that.
        Meet Our Team
      • Hangley Aronchick attracts staff who understand the importance of teamwork, cooperation and respect. You will have the opportunity to work on interesting cases with great teams and be a genuine part of the action. You may be asked to sit on a committee where decisions affecting the firm are decided — everything from where to hang artwork to developing procedures to make the firm more efficient. If this is the type of environment you are looking for, please apply to work with us.

        Paralegals

        • Our paralegals are assigned to the firm’s various practice areas and play a vital role in supporting our clients’ needs. As a paralegal at Hangley Aronchick, you will be the liaison between the shareholders, associates, support staff, and the client.
        • You will be challenged to draw on your experience and skills on a daily basis and encouraged to explore new technologies. The leadership of our firm recognizes that expanding our paralegals’ knowledge contributes to the firm’s overall success. We are committed to the professional development of our paralegals and encourage their membership and activity in the Philadelphia Association of Paralegals.

        Administration

        • Hangley Aronchick has a motivated administration department. Our administrators do their best to foster the firm’s friendly, mutually respectful, and professional atmosphere.
        • From the newest clerk in the accounting department to the firm’s administrator, the department’s primary goal is to provide exceptional service to the attorneys and legal staff while managing the day-to-day activities that make a law firm work.

        Legal Secretaries

        • Our legal secretaries are valued employees who are viewed as individuals and not simply someone who can send the fax, type the letter, or make the corrections. Both the attorneys and the administration rely on the legal secretaries’ special skills to deliver the superior customer service that our clients have come to expect.
      • Because our firm is smaller than many of our peers, our attorneys immediately have the opportunity to work with some of the best lawyers in the region, if not the country. In publications ranging from Chambers USA to The Best Lawyers in America, our business, litigation, bankruptcy, environmental, and real estate lawyers are singled out as the best in the profession, and described as “stellar litigators” and negotiators with an “impressive knack for cutting to the heart of the issue.” We publish and we teach, locally and nationally.

        • You will work closely with and learn from leaders in the profession.
        • You will have early and meaningful opportunities to meet with and advise clients, take and defend depositions, go to court, and write briefs, among many other things.
        • We try—not just prepare and settle, but actually try—a lot of important cases on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants, big and small. People seek us out when they have a complicated case that simply has to be battled out in court. Our relatively small size and our position on the short list of trial specialists for complex cases enable us to offer our associates something that is rare in larger firms—hands-on experience in cases that go the distance.
        Learn about our work
        • Even our newest lawyers have significant roles in major cases.
        • Attorneys – including associates – are actively involved in the firm’s management.
        • Every committee has at least one associate on it.
        • An associate serves as a representative and an observer at the firm’s Board meetings.
        • We are colleagues and friends. Our relationships are being forged inside and outside of the office, including through the firm’s weekly Friday Lunches, impromptu “Rule of Four” lunches, softball games, and community service.
        Learn about our Culture
        • We enjoy our job and value the firm’s emphasis on collegiality, mutual respect and, of course, a sense of humor.
        • We think we offer a wonderful, quirky, absorbing place to work, particularly for lawyers who like to laugh.
        • We view each associate as a person who will more likely than not be our partner some day.
        • Take a look at our attorney biographies – we believe that we have some of the brightest, most talented attorneys around. We view each of our junior colleagues as rising stars in the profession.
        Meet Our Team
        • We work hard, but recognize that our lawyers are entitled to lives outside the office.
        • We worry as much about the associate who works too many hours as the one who works too few.
        • We have a part-time policy to facilitate alternative work arrangements.
        • Our pay scale and benefits remain competitive with many of the largest Philadelphia firms.
        • We do quite a bit of it, including several landmark cases. Click the link below to read more about the great pro bono work that our lawyers have done.
        • Subject to firm approval, attorneys are welcome to initiate pro bono projects; the firm also has longstanding relationships with many organizations which have pro bono legal services needs.
        • Our attorneys are deeply involved in the community and professional organizations. We are actively involved in local, state and national bar associations, teach courses at local law schools, and serve on boards and in leadership roles within community organizations.
        Learn about our Pro Bono Work
      • You are welcome to contact the Co-Chairs of our Hiring Committee, Dan Segal and Michele Fenkel, with any questions about the firm or our hiring process.
