We are proud to have built a team of more than 200 professionals whose diverse backgrounds and experiences have created a vibrant and inclusive workplace where individuals are respected and appreciated for their ideas and contributions. We recruit dedicated professionals to support the following areas:

Learning and Development

The key to our success lies in having exceptional teams with engaged, high-performing individuals who are committed to advancing a culture of continuous learning and development.  At Wiley, we provide employees with the ability to pursue rewarding careers along with access to educational and training opportunities, including firm-sponsored training, seminars, and conferences, to advance and expand their skills.  The firm also provides free access to LinkedIn Learning for everyone at Wiley.

Wiley Impact
Our learning and development strategy is simple – to allow our team members to have a meaningful impact on the success of the firm.  With this goal in mind, we designed a competency model and framework to provide a roadmap to success for all professional staff team members.  Additionally, our training curriculum for professional staff is tailored and customized to focus on building important foundational skills. Through investment in top-notch training resources, we are committed to providing team members with the tools they need to succeed at Wiley and beyond. 

Commitment to the Community

When you come to Wiley, you are joining a team of professionals who value public service. Employees donate their time, talent, and energy in countless ways to over 450 organizations throughout the year. With hands-on volunteer opportunities, participation in charity races, pro bono legal representation, clothing and food drives, and local educational partnerships such as our partnership with Langdon Elementary School, Wiley employees set an example for making DC a better place to live and work.

Pathways to Law School

The decision to pursue law school – while exciting, can be a challenging process.  At Wiley, the paralegal program is designed to provide a broad foundation of legal skills and can be ideal for those seeking to gain practical, hands-on experience before pursuing law school.  Paralegals work directly with our attorneys and build, through training and experience, key skills, while working on client-billable matters, preparing legal documents, performing research and analysis, and supporting the management of cases.  Paralegals have an annual hours requirement comprised of both client billable and professional development hours.  We are also proud that many of our paralegals are making a real difference in our local community by taking on lead roles supporting our attorneys with important pro bono matters.  We encourage interested applicants to contact us with any questions.

Additionally, as a sign of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession, we created the Wiley Pre-Law Scholarship.  For additional information, please click here.
