Build your career, bolster small businesses

Our clients and our team members are a lot alike — they harness the power of hard work, relationships, and collaboration to make things happen. We are looking for candidates who demonstrate the following abilities or attributes:
Coming out of law school, I seemingly had everything a young attorney could ever want — a job at a Big Four accounting firm with great co-workers, awesome benefits, job security, and even the ability to commute with my wife to work every day.
What I didn't have, though, was a sense of fulfillment — we were working with large companies to get them hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars of tax benefits, and the money didn't seem to have any impact on them. It didn't create any loyalty to our firm to continue doing work with us, as the clients sent out RFPs every year for the same business.
And so, just 366 days after my first day, I collected my signing bonus and left without any regrets. I moved back to my hometown and started my private law practice as a side hustle while working for a trial court judge. It didn't take me long to feel like a bigger fish in a smaller pond.
My journey is similar to the journey that a lot of our clients take. Many of them have steady jobs, but they also have thoughts, ideas, and inspiration — and occasionally enough motivation to try something on their own. For many of them, it's just a side hustle. For some of them, it needs to be a replacement for their income from day one. And for a small percentage, they're setting out to disrupt entire industries.
We don't believe that politicians create jobs. We don't believe that the government creates jobs. In truth, 95% of net job creation comes from businesses that are fewer than five years old. So if we really care about creating jobs, and we really care about our economy, let's help those job creators who are facing a constant uphill battle — startups and small businesses.
If you think about it, every single day, every single hour you have the choice:
You could stay.
Or you could leave.
You can show up to an unfulfilling job again tomorrow.
You can deal with your toxic coworkers again tomorrow.
Help business owners pursue opportunities, create jobs, and fix our economy in a workplace where your contributions are well-appreciated and well-compensated, with plenty of room to learn and grow. If you're goal-oriented, care about making an impact in our region, and embrace doing things differently by design, we'd love to talk to you.View Open Positions
Often the little guys make the biggest impact. Our services help small businesses make a difference locally, regionally, and even globally.
We don't work with just anyone. We work with clients who want to be worked with; those who value our expertise and acknowledge and actively apply our advice.
Our firm has goals, and we want our employees to have goals, too (personally, professionally, and financially). We truly believe we can achieve more together.
We've grown a fantastic referral network, and we continue to leverage and grow that network to benefit our employees and small business clients.
At Rust Belt Law, we do things differently by design — and we love it. Yes, we take our work seriously, but we like to have fun at the same time. Balance is key!
Make the money you want to make, live the lifestyle you want to live, and have the impact you want to have with coworkers who want to see it happen.
