Always seeking top talent. Want a challenge and to feel great about your career?


Always seeking top talent. We constantly evolve by securing the best team.


To continue building success, we are interested in finding talented people who are eager to lead high-profile litigation. We take our recruiting process seriously and we only seek exceptional people with top academic records and skill sets, and who demonstrate superior initiative, creativity and interpersonal skills.

  • Competitive salaries with bonus structure

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance coverage

  • Retirement benefits

  • Educational assistance/tuition reimbursement programs

  • A reputation unmatched in the industry

It all starts with our clientele, the people who place their trust in us to champion their causes, the ones who spark our vision and remind us we all have greatness in us and the power to make change.

Our team is culturally, racially and age diverse, but we share one thing: Devotion to our clients and their rights.
Since 1992, we’ve been leveling the playing field in workplaces, and between companies and consumers. Devoting our practice to class actions and fighting hard for our clients has earned us a top tier ranking among our peers.

Whenever possible, we promote from within, and we believe incentivizing along the way is critical. The hallmark of good lawyering is creativity, passion and an eye for details. If you have them, you can go far at Cole & Van Note.


We’re always on the hunt for top talent. Whether you are a new or seasoned litigator, if you are interested in employment, consumer rights or class action litigation, we encourage you to contact us.
