Rise to every professional challenge

Lerch Early has a very special culture: we not only give exceptional legal service to our clients, but we also try to make sure that every person who works here looks forward to coming to work every day.

We seek to achieve the highest possible quality of life for everyone in the firm. We strive for collegiality among our attorneys and our staff members.

What we Look For

Successful candidates for any position at our firm demonstrate that they are excellent at what they do, are committed to outstanding client satisfaction (both external and internal), are hard-working and are pleasant to work with.


In addition to our guiding principles, attorneys choose to work at Lerch Early for a variety of reasons. Key among them are the opportunities for meaningful work and fair compensation.

Principals have the ability to spend time with each client to understand their needs, rather than churning through as many as possible. Associates get to do more than document review—they work on substantive issues, and have more client interaction than at many firms.


The Lerch Early reputation is built upon strong relationships fostered by mutual respect, friendship, professionalism, integrity, and trust as we interact with our clients, our attorneys and our staff.

Lerch Early has remarkably low staff turnover because people like working here. We provide the chance for employees to develop professionally while helping our attorneys and clients.

Why work at Lerch Early?
Our Workplace

We build kinship in the office with activities like health fairs, Community Service Day, First Friday bagels and jeans plus drives for clothing, school supplies and toiletries for the less fortunate. We’re conveniently located a short walk from the Bethesda Metro.


Lerch Early is firmly committed to providing equal employment opportunity without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, ancestry, marital or veteran status, or physical or mental disability. For more, visit our Diversity & Inclusion page.
