Henderson, Caverly & Pum LLP is seeking a Senior Associate in its San Diego County based estate planning practice.  This is a partnership track position.

Successful Senior Associate candidates will have a JD from a top-tier law school and will already be licensed to practice law in the state of California, or are scheduled to take the California bar exam in July 2022 with a reasonable expectation of passing the exam. At least five years of experience in estate, gift and generation skipping transfer tax planning and drafting is a must.  An LLM in tax is desired, but it may be substituted with the right depth of experience in estate, gift, generation-skipping and fiduciary income tax planning.

Henderson, Caverly & Pum LLP is recognized nationally as top tier estates and trusts firm, with offices in San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe and Pasadena, California. Our attorneys are the best of the best, with three ACTEC fellows. We offer exceptional mentorship and professional development opportunities for our Associates and encourage them to grow professionally within and outside of the firm.  We compete with large national law firms while offering a superior firm culture.  We focus on doing the best work for our clients while allowing a high quality of life for our attorneys and other employees.  In that regard, we provide modest billable hour requirements (1600 hours for Senior Associates) to ensure there is sufficient time for professional development. We assume every Associate will one day be a Partner and that is our goal.  We have a collegial and supportive work environment that is focused on respect, teamwork and an appropriate amount of fun.

Our estate planning clients are exceptional, their needs are always interesting and intellectually challenging, and we choose to only work with pleasant people because we can.

We provide competitive pay and offer comprehensive benefits.  While we believe in-office work is the most valuable for our Associates and we provide them dedicated office space, we do offer our Associates the option of working a hybrid in-office/remote work schedule.  We offer unlimited time off for Associates who are attaining their billable hour and other professional development requirements, subject to prior approval to insure clients’ needs are met.
