Law school is a time of exploration. It’s a time when aspiring attorneys discover the paths open to them and choose the direction their careers will take.

Steve shares how he started as a law clerk and today is CEO.

Maddin Hauser traditionally has recruited law school students as summer associates and first-year hires. In fact, many of our current shareholders have joined the firm via those routes. We invite summer associates and first-year attorneys with the hope and expectation they will grow their careers here over the long term.

As a major law firm, we offer compensation that’s competitive with other major firms in the Detroit area. We also offer a full range of benefits to staff attorneys, including health, life and, disability insurance; a cafeteria plan; a 401(k) plan; a profit-sharing program; paid bar examination; and paid vacation. We hire without regard to race, sex, age, religion, national origin, physical appearance, marital status, or disability.
