litigation is in federal court.


Getman, Sweeney & Dunn is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity as strength and
enrichment to our workplace and society as a whole and will not discriminate on the basis of

Kingston. Kingston is a vibrant city with rich history and architecture located within an hour and
a half north of New York City and an hour south of Albany. It was the state's first capital and has
a thriving arts and culinary community. The position requires you to work at the Firm’s office at
least part time, subject to pandemic conditions (we’re not fully open now), but some remote
work is an option.


Applicants need a strong commitment to righting wrongs, strong writing and research skills,
strong stand up and communication skills, and an ability to navigate complex litigation
procedure. Strong interpersonal skills are also required to work with our team and our diverse
clients.


Compensation includes salary and commission depending on experience. The Firm provides
health insurance, 401k, and other benefits. If you are interested, please send a cover letter, your
