Civil Litigation Associate

There is an opening currently for a 3rd year associate for our Civil Litigation practice. We regularly assist clients with business and personal disputes, including litigation regarding contracts, business torts, real estate, non-competition agreements, employment disputes, estate and fiduciary matters, partnership/corporate control and/or dissolution issues, and professional negligence.  Candidates must have strong academic credentials and excellent research, writing, and oral communication skills. Judicial clerkship experience is a plus.  Some trial level experience is preferred. 

Blankingship & Keith offers a collegial working environment and a competitive salary and benefits package. Email resume, cover letter, and a writing sample to Laurie Kirkland, Recruiting Partner, at lkirkland@bklawva.com.


While Blankingship & Keith maintains no set procedure for hiring lawyers, we are often looking for qualified candidates. We have hired new lawyers through our summer associate program, from clerkships, and by way of lateral moves from the government and from other firms.

We believe that providing hands-on experience is the key to ensuring the professional development of young lawyers, and at Blankingship & Keith that means taking depositions, drafting briefs and transactional documents, arguing in court, and client exposure. The firm attracts lawyers who want those experiences, and it trusts that, with the proper guidance, even its newest lawyers can handle them.

Blankingship & Keith is an equal opportunity employer that hires in conformity with all applicable laws, regardless of age, color, national origin, race, religion, sex, disability, or any other factor prohibited by law.

We enjoy life outside the law through firm picnics with our families, firm fishing expeditions, and bike trips.
