JOIN OUR TEAM
Caplan & Earnest is a different kind of law firm, one that values and respects the legal and business talents of our attorneys and staff members. Located in beautiful Boulder, we appreciate independent thinkers who enjoy solving complex challenges for our clients. And our flexible and supportive culture results in long-term team members and clients.
Maintaining a positive and supportive culture is a critical component of our experience at Caplan & Earnest. How we treat each other and our clients reflects the firm’s core values, as well as the beliefs and attitudes of our team members. This has been true for the firm since it was started by Gerald Caplan and Lane Earnest more than 50 years ago. Our members have worked diligently over the years to grow, maintain and adapt our firm culture as the business landscape has changed. Our culture drives everything from how we work with our clients to the people we hire to how we interact with each other to how we make decisions for our business. Simply put, our culture is what keeps our firm going. It is important for new people joining the firm to understand, respect, internalize and reflect our culture. In fact, we feel it is so important that we wanted to put it in writing for our new people. It starts with our firm mission and values.
Caplan & Earnest provides quality legal counsel at a fair value to our clients. Our teams work to solve complex legal issues that are in the best interest of our clients, and our legal solutions incorporate integrity and ethics. We value our communities and institutions that support our communities and strive to support them with the best legal counsel available. We appreciate our attorneys and staff and the value they add to supporting our clients. We also value and support the variety and differences of our employees, including their experiences and interests outside of the firm.
Caplan & Earnest believes in delivering exceptional client work while also allowing team members to maintain a satisfying work-life balance.
