, and we rank first in Michigan with the highest number of lawyers listed in several major practice areas. A total of 61 of our partners are rated as Super Lawyers

as one of the leading law firms in several areas of the law.
Warner Norcross & Judd is one of two firms in Michigan, and one of only 115 firms nationally, to be named in Kimm Walton's book, America’s Greatest Places To Work With A Law Degree
. Warner Norcross has been rated as the Best Corporate Law Firm in West Michigan for three consecutive years by Corporate Board Member
Every year since 2003, the Firm has been named one of the "101 West Michigan Best & Brightest Companies to Work For" by the Michigan Business & Professional Association. The Firm's Southfield office has earned the same honor for two consecutive years, as well as being selected in 2007 by Crain's Detroit Business
as one of its "Cool Places to Work" winners. We have been recognized as one of the nation’s most tech-savvy law firms according to a survey conducted by BTI Consulting Group.
In addition to these external accolades, we believe there are three things that distinguish our firm and make it great: the quality of our practice, firm policies that encourage excellence and discourage internal competition and the exceptional quality of life in Michigan.
Attorneys who seek a challenging legal practice often feel pressure to join law firms in the nation's largest cities. The members of those firms enjoy a sophisticated practice, but they pay a heavy price: the inflated cost of housing; the emotional cost of time spent commuting and the pressurized cost of working under policies which include planned attrition; divisive internal competition and unreasonable billable hours. There is an alternative. A handful of firms in cities of reasonable size enjoy a challenging and rewarding practice without these burdensome personal costs. Warner Norcross & Judd is one of those firms.
We recruit our attorneys from law schools throughout the country or as lateral candidates. We look for people with a demonstrated commitment to excellence who have the motivation, leadership ability and cooperative spirit necessary for success in our firm and the profession. Academic success is one important indicator of those qualities. Extracurricular activities, including moot court or law review, are also significant. Equally as important are the person's pride, professionalism and ability to work closely with colleagues.
In addition to providing exciting careers for lawyers, the Firm has many challenging job opportunities for others. Nonlawyer opportunities include paralegal, legal secretary, accounting, technology, marketing and human resources career paths as a sampling. Our compensation and benefits package is very competitive, placing a high value on flexibility and work/life balance, and our work environments are comfortable and equipped with the tools needed to be successful. Professionals at every point in the organization provide exceptional support to our legal team to assist the Firm in meeting the needs of our clients.
