Liskow & Lewis' recruitment goal is simple – to hire and retain attorneys who have demonstrated the potential for excellence. The firm regularly recruits top graduates from leading law schools in Louisiana, Texas and across the country, focusing on students who rank in the top percentile of their law school class. In addition to academic excellence, we also place a high value on law students and attorneys who share our commitment to maintaining the firm's collegial work environment and providing the highest quality legal services to our clients.
Liskow & Lewis also is committed to the continued development of a diverse firm culture. We regularly participate in the LSBA Minority Job Fair and the Tulane Diversity Clerkship Program for summer associate positions. Our firm prides itself on the pivotal roles women and minorities have played in the growth of the firm, and the recent opening of our Houston office was managed and guided by a female managing partner. Liskow & Lewis also supports a diversity chairman who is devoted to the professional growth of minority attorneys as well as the growth of a diverse client base.
Our firm encourages lawyers and staff to participate in pro bono and other community outreach efforts. We are active in the New Orleans Pro Bono Project, an organization which acts as a central coordinator of services to those in need, and our attorneys represent clients in a variety of areas ranging from contract disputes to child protection. Our lawyers have also responded to the call from state and federal courts to provide legal representation to indigent defendants in criminal matters. Liskow & Lewis is committed as an institution to fulfilling our social obligation to provide legal services to those who otherwise could not afford to have an attorney represent their interests.
