Associate – Real Estate & Land Use

Saalfeld Griggs Business Lawyers has an immediate opening for an associate attorney in our Real Estate & Land Use practice group.


Working at Saalfeld Griggs

At Saalfeld Griggs our attorneys work in close partnership with business owners, entrepreneurs, and some of the Northwest’s most successful companies to help them achieve their goals. We don’t do every kind of law — we focus on legal challenges faced by businesses and their owners. In our specialized practice areas, we bring a depth of expertise typically matched only by large, regional firms, but with close client relationships and a collegial atmosphere that only smaller firms can provide. We work in a team-oriented environment and our associates have significant client contact from the very beginning. Saalfeld Griggs is an Equal Opportunity Employer.


Salem is Our Home Base

Salem is a great place to live, to get connected to a vibrant community, to raise a family, and to explore the great outdoors. We offer an affordable cost of living, minimal traffic hassles, plentiful outdoor space, and lots of local events and recreation venues. Drive one hour in any direction, and you’ll find even more adventure — the rustic Oregon coast, the Cascade mountains, nightlife in downtown Portland, and PAC-12 collegiate and professional sports.
