FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

  1. How will an associate's practice areas in the firm be determined?
    • Fellers Snider has a multitude of practice areas. Unless associates are hired for a specific practice area, practice areas for associates are determined by the interest of the associate and the needs of the firm. 
  2. What kind of work are associates given when they begin?
    • Fellers Snider prides itself on being one of the largest and most established firms in Oklahoma. We provide new associates with the immediate opportunity to contribute to case strategies and perform real- life legal work. Our associates are never confined to only writing memos and briefs. At Fellers Snider, associates attend and conduct depositions, obtain courtroom experience, and work directly with clients and opposing counsel.
  3. Is there a billable hour requirement for associates?
    • Fellers Snider does not have a billable hour requirement. Our compensation structure is such that associates are able to share in a percentage of their profits. At Fellers Snider, we reward hard work proportionately.
  1. What is the partnership track at the firm?
    • There is no set timeframe for determining shareholder eligibility. Historically, associates are considered for shareholder status within 5-7 years after joining the firm. This is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and other factors are considered, including the prior experience of lateral hires before joining the firm. There are regular performance evaluations and enhancement training to enable associates to attain promotion to shareholder in a prompt and timely manner.
  1. Does the firm hire laterally?
    • Yes, on a need basis.

7.      What does the firm’s clerkship program entail and how do I get involved?
  • Our summer clerkship program is generally divided in two six-week periods, separated by the Independence Day holiday.  We hire approximately 4-6 summer clerks, comprised of both first and second-year law students.  Our clerkship program is designed to provide real-world practical experience.  Law students leave our six week program with a realistic feel for what it is like to practice law at Fellers Snider.  However, like our actual practice, we mix this working environment with numerous social opportunities to get to know our lawyers on a more personal level.
