At Ahlers & Cooney, we take our legal work very seriously, but we also respect a strong work/life balance for our attorneys and staff -- the quality of life that Iowans expect and enjoy. The long tenure of our attorneys is a reflection of this belief -- which provides continuity and is a key benefit to our clients.
It is important to our firm's culture that we continue to recruit and hire bright, energetic lawyers, engage them early in a formal professional development program and continue to mentor them along the way. Our goal is to bring on attorneys who advance in their legal career, become a shareholder, and retire from practice with our firm. Whether hiring for our Summer Associate Program or recruiting for new Associates, our entire firm is dedicated to this process.
Our firm is committed to diversity and seeks to foster an organizational culture of mutual respect, and to attract, retain and promote outstanding lawyers and administrative staff from all backgrounds and perspectives. In support of this commitment, the firm participates in Drake Law School's Law Opportunity Leadership Program for diverse students, as well as DMACC's Career Fair on Urban Campus, which has a very diverse student population, for our legal support and administrative staff.
