Careers

We’re going to cut to the chase here: we’re a Firm with high expectations of everyone who joins our team, but we’re also known for having a culture that is like no other. It’s something we’re proud of and will continue to refine and prioritize, always.

No matter the role you seek, we look for the same qualities and pizazz in everyone. Personality, honesty, boldness, and a willingness to just work hard, and the motivation to continue learning. We’re a unique firm but in a good way. No, a GREAT way.

Still with us? Good! Click on one of the drop-downs below based on what you’re looking for and find out the real goods we look for when hiring.

We’re here to say we aren’t just your typical lawyers. We don’t suit and tie it every day, we aren’t stuffy and we certainly don’t lack a sense of humour.

We can be serious but we have fun and engage in water-cooler talk, but the good, non-gossipy kind. We work hard, we love our clients and we always look out for their best interest. Oh and we enjoy the occasional margarita (not during billable hours of course).

So let us just cut to the chase here: we’re a Firm with high expectations of everyone who joins our team, but we’re also known for having a culture that is like no other. It’s something we’re proud of and will continue to refine and prioritize, always.

So, before we waste your time, Hayes Fry Law is likely not a fit if you:

  • Aren’t willing to bring your A-Game. Every day.
  • Are looking for a typical 9-5, Monday-Friday “job”.
  • Prefer to be given things rather than earn them.
  • Don’t enjoy the small things like Friday Starbucks or Just Because Cupcakes, because we’re awesome like that (we love carbs).
  • Don’t believe in the value of company culture, and enjoy office drama.
  • Don’t like truly effective great leaders.
  • Don’t want to be valued or respected for who you are; we’re excited to discover your special talent and help you maximize it!
  • Don’t like wearing comfortable clothes (we single-handedly keep Lululemon and Levi’s in business, of course, we still do Suits for anything Serious).
  • Don’t believe in doing things differently, and aren’t open to change (we are redefining the practice of law, and will never stop).
  • Don’t want to advance your career and achieve financial success.
  • Are looking for top-down old school management to tell you what to do and when to do it.
  • Don’t feel comfortable speaking up, because everyone has a voice here, and we listen.
  • Don’t have a sense of humour. Law is serious business, our coping mechanism is the funnies.

If all of the above doesn’t describe you at all, then we want to hear from you! Why? Because that’s how we roll and we love to roll with our homies….and we hope that includes you one day.
