Careers

At Comitz | Beethe, our focus is on winning for our clients through the development and execution of studied, meticulously considered strategies. We encourage the sharing of ideas and information in a collaborative, collegial environment fostered by mutual trust. After years spent practicing in large regional, national and international firms, our attorneys have learned how to focus discovery and develop themes that will make a difference at trial. We do not spend time on activities that build up hours but are unlikely to contribute to a successful outcome. Instead, we focus on optimizing results at every stage of the case, analyzing risks and benefits, and moving forward in a sophisticated and relentless manner.

Our attorneys have distinguished academic records, are involved in the community and are committed to success. We seek applicants with the motivation, intellect and personality it takes to uphold our reputation for performing outstanding legal work and obtaining results.

We give our attorneys hands-on opportunities and responsibility early in their careers, including participation in the management and administration of the firm. For those who fit within our firm’s unique atmosphere, we offer the opportunity to flourish in a relaxed environment among smart, dedicated attorneys. We work hard, but also understand the importance of balancing our careers with our lives outside of the office. We know that attorneys are most productive when they keep time for family, friends and recreation.

Comitz | Beethe is committed to growth and development of the legal community that reflects the rich diversity that surrounds us. We believe that diversity in backgrounds, experiences and ideas enriches our lives and enhances the quality of our work. Our firm is committed to the recruitment, development and advancement of qualified attorneys without discrimination based upon sex, age, color, national origin, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation, or marital, parental or veteran status.

Comitz | Beethe welcomes applicants who wish to work in a professional environment built around finding creative, thoughtful solutions to what may appear as insurmountable challenges. Attorneys seeking a position with the firm should send a resume and cover letter to Edward O. Comitz, Esq. at ecomitz@cobelaw.com.

“Comitz | Beethe is an outstanding place to work. Throughout the summer the attorneys trusted me with meaningful responsibilities and challenged me to produce legal work of exceptional quality. They refined my legal writing and taught me how to think and work strategically. They gave me practical skills that will make me a successful legal advocate. This experience truly has been the highlight of my legal education.”

“What makes Comitz | Beethe such a great place to work is its people. Everyone is exceptionally gifted in what they do, but their collective success is due to the current of passion that flows throughout the firm—relentless determination to achieve the maximally successful outcome for each and every client. The resulting atmosphere is highly productive but also friendly and egalitarian. I was encouraged on projects to exercise my own creativity and judgment, and I felt that my ideas were valued in determining strategy. There were also unique opportunities to observe and work in managerial areas of law practice, including marketing, that are simply not taught in law school. With each project, I received both helpful feedback and progressively increasing responsibilities. After working with such exceptionally talented attorneys on practical, real-world assignments, my summer has truly been a transformative legal experience.”

“Working at Comitz | Beethe has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my law school career. From my first day, I was challenged with projects that required me to work creatively and think beyond the traditional legal process. While many of my classmates sat in cubicles writing memos all summer, I was invited to participate in strategy meetings and offer my own insight. Being able to work so closely with exceedingly sharp, experienced attorneys showed me what it means to be passionate and results-oriented, and their constant feedback was invaluable to my practical education.”
