Position currently available:

Business Associate

Are you looking for:
• A change of pace?
• A dramatically shorter commute?
• A creative, team-focused work environment?
• Complex and engaging legal work in a laid back, but high energy agricultural setting?

Do you want to live in a place that has:
• 300 days of annual sunshine?
• An emerging food, beverage, and music scene?
• Endless hiking, skiing, boating and other outdoor opportunities only minutes from your front door?

Stokes Lawrence’s Yakima office seeks a dynamic, hard-working, detail-oriented, and intellectually curious attorney for its expanding Business and Agriculture Groups. This position offers immediate client contact, business development, and career-building opportunities, along with a strong mentoring focus.

Only candidates with a sincere interest in relocating to Yakima to build a business/agriculture-oriented legal practice need apply. Two to three years’ prior business and/or agriculture legal experience preferred, but not required for an otherwise determined and qualified candidate with more or less experience.
