Recruiting

Why join the team at Cairncross & Hempelmann?

Well, for starters, the people here are genuine. We’re here because we want to be part of an environment that allows us to have fun while we produce top-notch legal work. We strive to balance professionalism with a fun, family-style atmosphere. If you visit our offices, you'll notice that we don't put names on office doors, and we don’t do that for a reason - we'd rather take a moment to discover the person behind each desk.

At CH&, each individual has a voice. Ideas about procedures and practices are regularly solicited from employees and frequently acted upon. All employees have opportunities to be heard and acknowledged at meetings, retreats, and on a day-to-day basis.

CH& people approach career and outside activities with energy and enthusiasm. Our varied interests revolve around family, outdoor activities, and community service.  We serve on non-profit boards in support of ideals that mean something to us, including those that support homelessness and housing affordability, the arts, and the cultures of the Puget Sound region.  In addition, the firm offers the opportunity to support selected charitable organizations by hosting quarterly donation drives for organizations like Legal Foundation of Washington, King County Bar Foundation, King County Sexual Assault Resource Center, Path with Art, and the Chief Seattle Club. Of course, there are a few of us that are best described as preferring spectator sports, while others actively participate in physical activities like cycling, mountaineering, backpacking, fly fishing, gourmet cooking, snow and water skiing, sailing, music, kayaking, paragliding, and youth programs. We are a diverse group with wide-ranging interests and welcome any opportunity to embrace new adventures!

Attorneys and staff of different backgrounds add to the richness of our firm environment and better enable us to serve our many (and diverse) clients. We believe that through our differences we enhance the richness of our environment. As a result, we continuously seek diversity through our hiring efforts at all employee levels.  Follow the link for information about our Diversity Fellowship.
