Careers

Yetter Coleman is a special team.

We represent sophisticated clients across the country and in a range of industries — including the energy, technology, and financial services sectors — in high-stakes matters that affect our clients in significant ways.

We actively prepare each case for trial, finding and telling the most powerful story, and represent our clients through any appeals. For that reason, our advocacy needs to be of the highest quality.

We hire attorneys with stellar professional and academic accomplishments and provide them with the right opportunities to continue developing into first-class advocates. And we partner them with top-notch professional staff who enjoy what they do in our single goal of providing the highest level of service to our clients.

Yetter Coleman offers an entrepreneurial practice environment, competitive compensation, benefits, and a respect for work-life balance. Just as important: We are strongly committed to fostering a warm and vibrant culture that emphasizes collegiality, teamwork, and above all, treating one another with professionalism and respect. We operate as a team, enjoy working together, and support one another.

I know every day that I am here at Yetter Coleman I am investing in professional growth that will make me a skilled advocate down the line. My colleagues and I inspire one another toward the kind of excellence that’s necessary to consistently deliver outcomes to clients.

Trial Associate

If I were in Big Law, I think it would be years, if ever, before I got to make my first oral argument. I’ve already gotten to do my first oral argument here. The level of experience is huge.

Appellate Associate

In my year here, I have had excellent standup opportunities that I think are representative of what all associates here at Yetter Coleman are able to get. The Partnership here wants to invest in associates; they view the associates as future partners. In order to do that you have to make sure you’re training your associates and giving them those opportunities.

Trial Associate

You’re given this immense level of trust from the minute you start at the firm, yet you’re never left out to dry. There are always opportunities to get feedback, guidance, and mentorship. Having that trust from your colleagues to do these really difficult tasks is incredibly helpful so that you feel like you can succeed.

Trial Associate

We really get to focus on a lot of appeals that are going to alter the jurisprudence of the state and the circuit.

Appellate Associate

I was looking for diversity in practice areas, and I was drawn to appellate work, but I wanted to do some trials first, and explore both of those things. Yetter Coleman is unique in that sense. Not a lot of firms will let you do both of those things; they make you choose.

Trial Associate

I feel lucky every day to work here. I feel lucky to work with the people I get to work with. Every day I am impressed and grateful at how smart they are and how warm they are and just how creative they are. It is just a lot of fun to be here. I didn’t expect to have so much fun practicing law.

Trial Associate

This is an institution that is invested not just in serving our clients and not just in doing the best legal work that we can, but also in growing our attorneys: helping them have good professional opportunities, but also in having a better life—being less stressed out, feeling like your family matters.

Trial Associate

Lateral Attorneys

Yetter Coleman welcomes lateral litigators at every level of experience, including junior associates, senior counsel, and partners.

We look for candidates with experience that complements our practice and who desire to be a good steward of our firm’s special culture of working within a tight-knit, highly effective team. Client needs are paramount in our hiring practices, including our goal of providing top-notch advocacy. To that end, we are always looking for colleagues who are eager to tackle complex disputes with energy, integrity, and skill.

When you join Yetter Coleman, you will work with some of the most talented trial and appellate lawyers in the profession. In addition, you will have a chance to work on significant cases for some of the country’s most prominent companies, while having the support to chart your own course. Our firm is committed to supporting business development efforts and helping new colleagues drive the growth of their practices.

Law Students

Law students can get substantive, first-hand experience with our firm during our Summer Associate program. Selective and designed to be immersive, our program gives Summer Associates an accurate sense of what it is like to work here, through meaningful work assignments.

For example, our Summer Associates have drafted motions for summary judgment, created opening presentations for mediation, and written witness outlines for arbitration, typically working closely with senior associates and partners to provide personalized training from our attorneys. Summer Associates can also count on exposure to the “stand-up” aspects of our practice, whether in hearings, depositions, oral arguments, or trials.

Over the summer, we provide regular feedback to help Summer Associates gauge their progress. In addition to informal input from attorneys they work with, they receive formal reviews at their midpoint and at the end of the summer.

Exposure to practice life is important, but it is also essential for Summer Associates to get to know us on a personal level. We offer a balanced calendar of social events that include informal lunches, interactive activities, Bar and legal organization events, happy hours, and dinners at our attorneys’ homes.

We seek rising 3L candidates who have demonstrated achievement and excelled at the nation’s top schools. We are particularly interested in those with law review or advocacy experience. If you think this sounds right for you, please submit your resume, transcript, and a writing sample to ycrecruiting@yettercoleman.com to learn about our summer program opportunities.
