working at forte law

At Forte Law we help people resolve conflict at work. We know that we can serve our community best by reflecting its diversity.  We welcome applications from candidates who add value to our team through their lived experiences, culture, and languages, and from members of groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession.

Our core values include:

Community & giving. We support our lawyers to give back through pro bono work, public legal education, and other local volunteer work.

Inclusion. We are committed to making our practice inclusive, equitable, and accessible – for our team and also for our clients.

Innovation. We are committed to improving access to justice.  We value our team members’ ideas, and we’re open to experimenting and trying new things.

Sustainable work. We believe that lawyers should have control over their practices and their lives. It is life-work balance here, not work-life. We do our best work for our clients when we can decide how much work to take on, and what type of files will be our focus.

Flexibility. We have lawyers working successfully in a variety of arrangements – full-time, part-time, contract work and remote work are all proven options. Our lawyers set their own schedules.
