The Firm: The Rudnicki Firm is a fast-paced, growth-oriented law firm based in Oklahoma City. Our attorneys have decades of combined litigation experience, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. The firm specializes in commercial litigation and personal injury defense. Our attorneys have worked in both “big firms” and regional firms throughout their careers.

The position is for the Texas office, where the associate will be working one on one with our Senior Counsel based in Texas.
The Right Fit: This is a unique opportunity to work with experienced mentors in a collaborative, team environment that provides the opportunity to grow in a way that might not be available at other law firms. The right associate will receive top-notch mentorship, not only to expand litigation skills but to also engage in effective client development. Our senior attorneys want to help this associate grow and develop their litigation skills and practice. In return, the firm is looking for an organized, flexible, and (most importantly) hard-working associate that is willing to take this opportunity and turn it into a career.
The right Associate must:
- Possess at least 5+ years of experience in litigation and licensed in Texas.
