Geiger Law Office, P.C., an established boutique Trusts & Estates law firm with offices in Carlsbad and Laguna Niguel, has made a very deliberate choice to concentrate on the field of estate planning and related issues. We work every day with people who are worried about their families’ futures. This means we can draw upon a deep pool of knowledge and experience when helping clients reach their individual goals.

We have found combining a high-level of personal attention and our niche legal knowledge is the best way to please our clients throughout the local San Diego and Orange County communities. We practice exclusively in the areas of trusts and estates, trust and estate administration, business planning, asset protection, and elder law pre-planning.

As we’ve significantly grown over the last several years and expect this trend to continue, we’re looking to add an associate attorney with four or more years of experience in the field of trusts and estates planning to grow with our busy practice. We need our new team member to have the same mindset as we do regarding creating a best-in-class work product and experience for our clients.

We’re offering the following benefits to our new associate:

  • A competitive compensation package
  • Bonus compensation opportunities
  • Healthcare cafeteria plan including health insurance (PPO or HMO), vision and dental
  • 401k Plan with matching program (eligibility after six months employment)
  • Disability insurance
  • Life insurance
  • 8-9 Holidays a year
  • Competitive PTO (paid time off)
  • Paid CA Bar dues (annually when due)
  • Continuing legal education
  • Mentorship by our experienced managing attorney; and
  • An opportunity to further develop your legal technical and business development skills

We want to make sure that we are a great match and that you will be happy and we will be happy working together. Life is too short to spend your days working with people you don’t enjoy being around.

The specific traits we’re looking for in our new associate attorney is someone who is hard-working, a very good communicator verbally and in writing, has an upbeat personality, has four (4) or more years of experience in estate planning, has superior follow-up skills, and has a very high attention to detail. Our ideal candidate also needs to be very comfortable engaging potential clients in person and over the phone, is great working in a team environment, and is someone who is very dependable.

If you’re looking for some place to plant roots where you can really make a difference in the lives of clients and grow long-term with a great team, then you should respond to this ad. We work hard to be the best at what we do both technically and from a customer service standpoint.

Here’s a more detailed description of what you would be doing as an associate at our firm:

  • Work closely with our managing attorney on new and existing client matters
  • After learning our systems and processes, meet with and counsel prospective clients to design their estate plans over the phone and eventually in person (when life returns to normal after the pandemic)
  • Follow-up with perspective, new and existing clients
  • Double-check work product generated by our Paralegals, Law Clerks and Legal Assistants
  • Supervise office workflow in the legal department
  • Work on trust administration, probate and business formation matters in addition to estate planning cases
  • Periodically attend continuing legal education course work
  • Provide an exceptional experience and professionalism to our clients
