Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo is a full-service law firm with over 170 attorneys in nine California offices. We look for attorneys and other professionals of the highest caliber.  

Our Culture
We are proud to offer attorneys and staff a productive working environment which promotes teamwork throughout the firm. Attorneys can expect a challenging and fulfilling legal practice. Managers, paralegals, secretaries, and other staff members also take on challenging roles and are integral in delivering outstanding service to our clients.

We are widely recognized as one of the most diverse and inclusive law firms in the country. In May 2017, Chambers USA honored the firm as one of the five Most Inclusive Firms for Minority Women Lawyers nationwide. In March 2017, AALRR was awarded Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc.’s (ABC) National Diversity Excellence Award for the third time in the Associate category. In May 2016, Law360 ranked AALRR as the second best law firm in the country for minority equity partners and the ninth best in the country for minority attorneys in general.

Many of our attorneys and staff spend their entire careers at AALRR. Our retention rates are much higher than average—our associate retention rate alone is over 90 percent. Here are some reasons why:

  • We fully embrace our “culture of congeniality.” AALRR prioritizes teamwork, inclusivity, and a good-natured sense of community at every level. Our attorneys help each other grow their practices through cross-marketing, mentoring, and other means.
  • Our firm actively encourages involvement in the community at large. Many of our attorneys are also law professors, State Bar committee members, and pro bono providers.
  • To work at AALRR is to be surrounded by talent. Many of our attorneys have been named to nationwide “Best Of” lists, including Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America.
  • Our large marketing staff is dedicated to promoting AALRR and individual attorneys to new clients across the state and to keeping our current clients satisfied. We hold over 400 events annually, offer numerous opportunities for attorneys to present at conferences and other events, and regularly nominate our attorneys for recognition in both statewide and nationwide publications.
  • AALRR attorneys and staff enjoy an excellent working environment. We build offices where our attorneys and clients live, reducing commutes and avoiding steep rents. We have one of the best profit-sharing plans in California and continually develop new ways to keep our people satisfied.
