We are excited about our dynamic group of partners, associates, and professional staff and have enjoyed the success we have enjoyed together, as a firm.

As a full-service business law firm, offering our clients comprehensive representation in virtually all commercial matters, including transactional and litigation support, we seek out persons whom we believe will mesh well with the personalities of the firm’s lawyers, staff and clients. We are generally looking for outgoing, enthusiastic individuals who are interested in a varied business law practice.

Workplace Environment

Montgomery Purdue is very serious about the quality of legal services it provides to its clients. But that doesn’t mean the firm’s culture isn’t one of friendly camaraderie. We have events throughout the year, such as:

Summer get-together

Healthy competitions

Holiday party

Charity fund raisers

Birthday celebrations

Potluck luncheons

We have always believed that a healthy and active life outside of the firm leads to the most energetic, productive people inside the firm. We find this makes for an interesting and lively workplace.

We do not expect our team members to put in exceedingly long hours. For professional support staff, overtime is an infrequent occurrence. When a big project comes up, however, which requires everyone to pitch in above and beyond the usual call of duty, our lawyers and professional support staff are there to do whatever needs to be done.

Personal interests among people in our firm vary widely.

Some of our interests include running, cooking, traveling, playing various sports, gardening, crafting, reading, playing instruments, learning foreign languages, fishing, hiking, biking, and wine tasting.  A few attorneys share what they like best outside of work:

After work, there is nothing better than playing tennis outside in the searing sunshine.  In winter, it’s spinning and all year around, I always find time for travel, as well as wine tasting in Woodinville, Walla Walla, and Willamette Valley.

Nothing like sledding in the mountains on a clear winter’s day.

Partner

While this former surfer has long since hung up his wetsuit, I still enjoy the outdoors, as well as tasty craft beer, English Premier League football, and embarrassing my two teenage sons. 

Joshua Pope
Partner

Outside of work, I like activities that trigger my fondness for the smells of spent gunpowder, fermented cabernet grapes, welding smoke, and freshly mown grass.

All in all, Montgomery Purdue provides a quality work environment for its lawyers and support staff, and one which encourages personal as well as professional growth.
