Despite economy, firm is creating legal jobs in Chicago
Posted on January 7, 2012
A law office is busy creating legal jobs in Chicago, according to its website.
The Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates PC has hired several new paralegals and administrative staff.
It also brought on four new attorneys, making the total now seven attorneys.
“It was just me, my secretary and an assistant when I went into private practice 17 years ago,” noted Steven Malman, who first started practicing when he graduated from the School of Law at Loyola University-Chicago and passed the bar exam exactly two decades ago. “I added my first associate a few years later, and then a second a few years after that. But things really started picking up a few years ago.”
Malman credits advertising for his success in 2011, and also great customer service.
“A good third of our business is referrals from existing clients, and I can’t think of a better endorsement for the work done by our staff,” he said. “We have great customer service that focuses on our clients and makes it as easy as possible on them, and that shows in the impressive number of word-of-mouth referrals we receive.”
“As long as the demand is there, we’ll keep growing,” Steven Malman said. “And the demand is definitely there. We have a team of 20 dedicated professionals now, including seven attorneys, and we’ll keep adding to it, as much as necessary, to ensure that we can not only bring the proper legal resources to bear on every case, but that our customer service remains an example throughout the legal profession.
