Working as an attorney or law clerk at O’Donnell, Schwartz & Anderson, P.C. offers an exciting opportunity to perform sophisticated legal work with direct client contact and meaningful responsibility. We have the congenial environment of a small firm with a level of diversity unmatched by even the biggest firms.
Our associates and law clerks are exposed to a variety of issues, clients, and assignments. Associates are generally assigned to a principal or team of principals and associates allowing them to develop their skills in specialized areas of labor law while being exposed to the variety of the firm’s practice.
Law clerks research and write concerning a wide range of issues of primary importance to our clients, with a balanced mix of traditional labor law assignments and projects touching on many other areas of law of interest to our clients’ members.
In both our associates and law clerks we look for individuals with excellent academic records, a commitment to social justice, and the ability to take on significant responsibility.
We encourage applications from people of color and actively recruit summer associates through the AFL-CIO LCC Minority Outreach Program. The firm offers a compensation package that is competitive with other union-side firms in D.C.
