Job Title: Family Law Attorney – Fox Valley Office

About Sterling Lawyers

At Sterling Lawyers, we are pioneers, redefining family law with a passion for service to others and a flair for innovation. Since our inception, we've challenged the status quo, growing to be leaders in the legal landscape of Wisconsin and Illinois. Now, as we set our sights on a nationwide presence, we are seeking additional attorneys for our Fox Valley offices, with locations in Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, and Sheboygan.

What We Do Right

We believe the practice of family law is an act of service to others experiencing what may be the worst season of their lives. It's about providing solace, crafting solutions, and navigating our clients until we’re out of the tunnel together. This is why we've said goodbye to the billable hour, embracing a fixed-fee model that allows us to focus on what truly matters — our clients. This allows our clients to know their lawyer cares about them–not the clock, and allows our lawyers to focus on what matters–not meeting a billable hour quota. Our state-of-the-art technology isn't just a set of tools; it's an integral part of how we provide unmatched legal services. We’re efficient, adaptive, and strive to make our clients’ lives and our teams’ lives easier and better, all at the same time.

The Role

As a lawyer in our Fox Valley office, you'll be joining a movement with like-minded professionals. Here, you will:

  • Lead and resolve complex family law cases with a strategic, empathetic approach.
  • Innovate daily, utilizing technology to streamline processes and enhance client engagement.
  • Collaborate with a team of attorneys who are as committed to your success as they are to our clients'.
  • Develop and hone your skills in a nurturing environment that values curiosity, mentorship, and continuous learning.
  • Get help from an expert, when you need it. With over 20 lawyers, someone has seen the issue you’re facing before and they’ll be eager to help.

Your Development

  • Engage in a personalized career development plan with specific milestones and regular progress evaluations.
  • Access to unlimited external CLE opportunities.
  • Attend national family law conferences and workshops, staying ahead of the curve in legal trends and network building.
  • Influence how your own work gets done. There’s more than one way to do something, and we are always on the lookout for ways to improve so we can all succeed.


  • $75,000-$175,000 annually

Benefits And Culture

  • A highly competitive salary structure, complemented by performance-based bonuses that honor your hard work and dedication.
  • Full health benefits, including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, plus disability coverage to protect your well-being.
  • A robust 401k plan with matching contributions, investing in your future.
  • An Apple tech suite that's not just state-of-the-art but tailored to your workflow, ensuring peak efficiency and satisfaction. (PC users have options, too!)
  • Flexible working arrangements, including remote work, that respect your personal time and space, because we know the brightest stars shine with balanced lives.
  • Fun, casual work environment (no suits required).

Who You Are

  • You’re comfortable disrupting the traditional model of family law practice.
  • You have a strategic mindset and problem-solving approach, with a keen eye for both the big picture and the minute details of each case.
  • You are comfortable with leveraging technology in all facets of your work.
  • You are empathetic with a genuine desire to serve, support, and guide clients through their journey.

Sterling Life

  • Experience a work culture that's buzzing with energy, where your colleagues are more than just coworkers — they're catalysts for your growth.
  • Enjoy unlimited vacation days, because we trust you to excel in your role while also taking the time you need to recharge.
  • Dive into an environment where your work has a direct impact, not just on your clients, but on shaping your environment and the future of family law.
