“I wanted a small firm where people genuinely enjoy working with each other and do top-quality work.”

Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis offers cutting-edge work in an unusually friendly environment with a generous package of compensation and benefits.  We do not offer 24/7 secretarial service, ugly lobby sculptures, or a global constellation of so-called "partners" whom we've never actually met. 

We take our twin commitments to professional excellence and personal collegiality extremely seriously.  Accordingly, whether we are hiring an associate, a legal assistant, or another member of our talented staff, we look for personality traits like initiative, creativity, flexibility, self-confidence, and overall affability.  Evidence of any tendency toward surliness without grave provocation is almost always disqualifying.

Don't take our word for it.  We encourage you to learn more about the firm by reading the June 20, 2014 article in The Washington Post naming us Washington's best small company workplace: "Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis aims to make employees feel invested in firm's success" and the June 2, 2003 profile of our firm in the Legal Times:  "Balancing Act:  At Harris, Wiltshire, staff gets share of profits. Lawyers get top work.  All get a shot at outside life."
