Your Career. Reimagined.

Your legal career is more than a billable hour. It’s about impact. At GessnerLaw, PLLC, we leverage our platform to enhance impact—whether you are a lawyer, a marketing professional, a business development savant, or an operational expert. Your skills have value beyond the billable hour. And we have created a model to value those skills—all the skills.

Developing and refining our platform has taken time. In 2020, we are celebrating our five-year anniversary. With the benefit of time and perspective, we understand what we can do for you; how we can do it; and why it matters. Our compensation structure is creative. We work hard but also celebrate the “wins” and each other often. Our community engagement approach is customized. At GessnerLaw, PLLC, it’s about you. Clients pick lawyers, not law firms. We know that, and we believe our firm’s clients will pick you if they only had the opportunity to get to know you. So come join us. Be known. Be heard.

To be considered for any opportunity, we ask for some introspection: (1) are you approachable; (2) are you comfortable expressing vulnerability; (3) do you view mistakes as opportunities, learn from them, and thrive as a result; and (4) do you value authenticity? If you can answer “Yes” to these four questions, we should meet.

We are looking for the right candidate/team member, who is an exceptional fit regardless of location. Must have proven experience of thriving and achieving in a remote environment if not in Charlotte.


Our ideal candidate is an attorney with at least three to five years of litigation experience, preferably in employment law, who is licensed in North Carolina. Demonstrating exceptional legal research and writing skills are required.
