Anastasi Jellum is a banking and business law firm with a strong concentration in banking law, commercial lending, and litigation. Our leadership team is genuinely dedicated to providing a healthy work environment for all. In fact, making sure we foster an exceptional place to work is one of our founding goals. While we do also offer a comprehensive benefits package—and that’s important, too—it is our team’s daily embodiment of work-life balance that is truly Anastasi Jellum’s most valuable employee perk.
At Anastasi Jellum, lawyers and staff are driven to excel, but also encouraged to not take themselves too seriously. We believe balancing clients’ expectations and legal needs with personal and professional endeavors is entirely within reach. For nearly 20 years, we have worked hard to cultivate a law office environment where work-life balance is truly possible. Reasonable minimum billable hour requirements, which are lower than most firms’, ensure that attorneys rarely have to work past 6 p.m. or on the weekends. This just makes good business sense, running the office more efficiently, saving clients money and keeping stress levels low.
Other ways we promote employee health and well-being, in addition to offering a full benefit package and 401k contributions, include:
- Monthly on-site massages
- A wellness program developed in partnership with a local hospital
- Health club membership reimbursement
- Healthy snack options
- Firm-sponsored birthday lunches
- Flexible hours
Naturally, we want to see all of our associates succeed in the legal field and actively support professional development through continuing education, participation in the firm’s mentoring program and of course, real-world experience. But unlike other firms, we don’t believe in pressuring our associates to bring in new business or get distracted by marketing activities early in their careers.
Working with Clients.
In addition to promoting a balanced work-life environment, Anastasi Jellum also maintains a strong reputation for its commitment to client service and personable, down-to-earth approach. Attorneys and staff alike are keenly focused on delivering common sense solutions that address clients’ legal needs in a cost-efficient manner, without compromising quality or sophistication. In our work with community banks, small- and mid-sized businesses, lenders, real estate developers and builders, we follow a simple philosophy that clients have come to appreciate:
- Approach every matter with a sense of urgency;
- Pay attention to detail;
- Have work completed before deadline;
- Keep the client informed; and
- Most of all, do excellent work.
