Careers Overview

Join our team. Accomplish more.

We understand the value of accomplishing more for clients – and ourselves. As a full-service national firm headquartered in the Midwest, our continuing growth offers clients and our people the advantages of size with the benefits of a flexible, diverse and close-knit organization.

We have a dynamic workplace, where career paths change and grow based on trust, communication, responsiveness and achievement. This process begins for attorneys and summer associates right away through hands-on experience and mentoring relationships built around client-driven work. Bolstered by this strong foundation, our attorneys and summer associates chart their own course to success.

In addition to the challenging work our size and scope offers, we encourage — and support — our attorneys’ pro bono work and community service. In fact, our efforts prompted The American Lawyer to recognize Dinsmore as one of the nation’s top pro bono law firms. We are deeply involved in our communities. 

The culture within our firm demonstrates the value we place on respect for all of our attorneys and staff.  We strive everyday for a diverse workplace that includes all people in a meaningful way.
