Gorman & Miller, a law corporation

We are a Santa Monica boutique law firm seeking an experienced trust and estates attorney to join our firm as Of Counsel. The attorney should have a self-sustaining book of business, meaning sufficient business to support himself or herself. While we do anticipate referring business to the attorney, we cannot guarantee any specific level of referrals. 

Currently, our firm has one trust and estates lawyer who is 90 years old and not taking on new matters. As a result, if the attorney is experienced in handling large estates, we would anticipate that the attorney would not only handle all new trust and estates matters but would take over the existing trust and estates matters when the current trust and estates lawyer retires.

For consideration, please email a cover letter and CV to
