A Day in the Life
At Plunkett Cooney we understand that life is about more than work. Our employees have many outside interests. Commitments to family, community, continuing education and other interests define who we are and impact our ability to provide superior legal services to our most valuable assets – our clients.
The snapshot to the right is from a recent "Jackets for Jobs" clothing drive that was spearheaded by the firm's Associate Development Committee. It is representative
of the many efforts our attorneys and support staff members undertake to make a real difference in their communities.
In order to perform effectively on a consistent basis, we recognize the need to strike a career/life balance. We offer flexible schedules, fully staffed departments to limit mandatory overtime, and an attractive benefit package, all of which allows us to maintain an effective and motivated team of support staff.
A day in the life of a Plunkett Cooney employee is never the same. That’s part of the fun. Our litigators are typically running to court, covering depositions or preparing their next brief in support of a client’s case. The firm’s appellate attorneys monitor high profile litigation, offer pre-trial and trial recommendations and argue on behalf of clients in some of the country’s highest courts.
Meanwhile, our transactional attorneys are busy a few doors down the hall teleconferencing with clients across the country who may be acquiring a tract of land for a major retail development. Of course, the deal needs to be done within 48 hours to satisfy the sellers who are still entertaining other offers, so we pull out all the stops to get the deal done.
For many, such frenetic daily scenarios may be daunting, but to Plunkett Cooney attorneys they’re just another day at the office. In fact, our attorneys thrive in today’s fast paced business environment! They even find a way to contribute their time and talents to the firm and community through service on firm committees and client advisory boards. They are members of chambers of commerce and volunteer time to serve on the boards of nonprofit organizations.
“Personally and professionally rewarding” is the way one Plunkett Cooney attorney describes her typical day. Although admittedly a lot of hard work, she feels appreciated by her clients and honored to serve her firm and community. “I can see myself at Plunkett Cooney 20 years from now!”
