The Ideal Environment for a Growing Law Practice

Recruiting at Sacks Tierney

For skilled and motivated attorneys, Sacks Tierney offers a 60-year tradition of peer recognition, performance awards, and the freedom and support you need to maximize practice growth and profitability.

An Attractive Environment

Sacks Tierney is an attractive environment for talented attorneys who seek (a) the economic and intellectual advantages of a sophisticated and varied "big firm" practice and (b) the supportiveness, flexibility, cooperative spirit and personal interaction found in an intimate, collegial setting.

In turn, we seek attorneys who excel in their areas of expertise; have strong academic credentials, references and communication skills; and are highly motivated to become contributing members of a premier law firm.

Peer Recognition

Individual honors and professional recognition in recent years are representative of our tradition for attorney excellence, with 11 Super Lawyers® selectees, 22 listed in The Best Lawyers in America™, and 15 attorneys receiving Martindale-Hubbell’s AV Preeminent® rating.

Performance Rewards

Sacks Tierney’s compensation system objectively rewards client originations, whether by shareholders or by associates. Over the years, this approach has served to broaden the base of our marketing activity and avoid a vulnerable dependence on one or two dominant rainmakers. Beyond consideration for originations, attorney compensation reflects a combination of productivity and firm-wide profitability. Further, to help you achieve success in client development, we utilize the services of a professional marketing consultant whom we make available for personal coaching and support.


“I practiced law as a sole practitioner for several years before I decided to join Sacks Tierney. What a great decision that has proven to be! With the excellent support here, I am free to spend my days practicing law and taking care of my clients without worrying about human resources, technology, billing and other administrative hassles.” – Matt Winter

“In joining Sacks Tierney after eight years at national firms, I especially appreciate our collegial environment, our competitive fee structure, the fair and equal treatment of attorneys and staff, and, as a working mother, the firm’s policies in helping me fulfill all of life’s responsibilities. Sacks Tierney is wonderful!” – Roxann Gallagher

"I have spent my entire legal career at Sacks Tierney, starting shortly after graduating from law school in 1986. The stability of our firm, its tradition of practice excellence, and our values of professionalism, integrity, respect, creativity, and performance that exceeds client expectations help make Sacks Tierney a firm where skilled and ambitious attorneys can enjoy long-term prosperity and satisfaction."  – Steve Goldstein

The Freedom to Practice Law

Sacks Tierney’s tradition of delegated management and decision-making frees our attorneys to focus their time and energy on serving clients, instead of on unprofitable administrative chores. Day-to-day decisions are made through frequent and effective communication between our managing shareholder and executive director. Intermediate and long-term planning is performed by our executive committee and implemented by administrative staff under the direction of the executive director.

The Support You Need

The leadership, commitment and stability of Sacks Tierney’s administrative and legal support staff are at the core of our success. Administrative and financial leadership is provided by our executive director, a Certified Legal Manager who has been in his position since 2001. Human resources, recruiting and technology management functions are handled by full-time professionals in those areas.

The Tools You Need

Recognizing the importance of technology in research, document preparation, time management, billing and communication, Sacks Tierney has a long-standing commitment to ensuring that our attorneys and staff are equipped with current hardware, software, operating systems and communication devices. Under the management of a full-time technology professional, our computer hardware is regularly updated, and the latest versions of key software are implemented as their reliability is confirmed.
