Family Lawyer Jobs
Interested in joining a law firm that allows you to work in a way that suits both you and your clients. Want to focus on the law rather than chasing work?
ClearWay Law is a growing law firm designed to work as a “family” allowing lawyers to focus on providing excellent legal advice and customer service. We recruit lawyers who share this passion and by providing a back-office solution where other specialists concentrate on everything non legal.
Assuming that client satisfaction, quality of work and fee targets are met, our lawyers achieve a work/life balance by working as they chose, whether remotely or not and with flexible hours that suit both the themselves and clients.
We are keen to hear from lawyers with at least 3 years’ experience in family law. We want those that can demonstrate a track record of excellent customer service and a desire to thrive in this environment.
There are many lawyers who focus on unprotective activities, likely to avoid doing legal work.
Our law firm is seeking an experienced family law attorney for British Columbia or Ontario. You should have at least five years experience in family law.
We currently have one legal assistant, but we may add extra. Mostly, our lawyers manage their own files with an assistant. That being said, our law firm manages the intake and billing of the clients. Also, we take on other duties for our lawyers.

Lawyers Need To Communicate With Their Clients
Firstly, communication with clients is the most important thing. We MUST get back to clients within 2 business days at a minimum. Most lawyers struggle with this.
*If you won’t be able to do it, please don’t apply.
We just started a large radio campaign with 680 News (spending around $20K/month) and we need great lawyers. The lawyer will work closely with the intake team to ensure retainer agreements are signed. Post retainer agreement being signed, the lawyer will do a great job communicating with the clients (48 hours max.) Yes, that was a repeat!

*Regarding family law jobs, do not call the law firm phone line. It is for clients only.
*We do not work with talent agencies.
As a lawyer, it doesn’t matter if you bill flat rate, on contingency, or hourly, you need to be productive to increase your hourly rate. Some law firms charge premium rates, which basically means they can bill whatever they feel like. Our law firm doesn’t do that, and we cannot believe it’s allowed. Many law firms see clients as cash cows, waiting to be milked.
As a lawyer if you charge $335 an hour, but only collect 71%, you are only earning $176/hour. Some lawyers are afraid to split with law firms, but if we can make you more productive, it’s worth it. And we will make you more productive.
In conclusion, doing admin, marketing, trying to get new clients, should be left to non-lawyers. ClearWay Law is great at generating leads and getting clients to sign up with us. How do we do this? We treat clients with respect and get back to them fast. Lawyers waste a lot of time asking for referrals and networking. Finally, leave it to non-lawyers to do. You will be surprised how much work can be done by support staff.
