“The support at the firm is excellent, from extremely experienced paralegals to very skilled legal administrative assistants.” This is a direct quote from our talking points for lateral partner interviews. And it doesn’t take long to recognize the truth in it.
The work we do for our clients provides interesting and challenging assignments, and Bowditch recognizes the many contributions necessary to meet the needs of our clients.
Our administrative professionals receive excellent technological support, training and other tools it takes to perform at the highest levels and to develop professionally. Personal and professional growth is encouraged in all departments.
We are especially proud of our ability to identify unique skills and provide opportunities for people to contribute beyond the job description. There are many examples of employees who learned new skills and moved into other departments at the firm.

- Eight weeks parental leave
- Flexible spending accounts for health and dependent care
- 401(K) savings plan and profit sharing plan
- Free parking in our Worcester and Framingham offices
- 10-12 holidays per year
- Bereavement, personal days, sick time
- Competitive salaries and vacation commensurate with years of experience
Here is a sample of what our team says about Bowditch:
“Bowditch encourages a team approach. Individual strengths are recognized, and together we provide high-quality, efficient service to clients. We support each other. At times, staff works directly with a client or client’s staff to provide effective, efficient service without duplicating tasks. Internally, we refer to ourselves as the Bowditch family – staff and attorneys. As a family, we celebrate weddings and births, and console each other at difficult times.”
When I joined the Bowditch team, I quickly connected with colleagues as if they were family and knew I made the right choice for me. Attorneys, leadership, immediate co-workers, and all professionals I’ve been in contact with have been very welcoming, friendly, and willing to help. I have learned a lot through all the coaching and provided support that made the transition into a new job feel comfortable. I enjoy the gatherings we have where we are working as a team but are also able to exchange laughs and fun moments as well. It has been a pleasure to join the “Bowditch Family” and I look forward to continuing to grow and learn here at the firm.
“Our attorneys and staff have longevity with the firm – a number of attorneys and staff have been here for well over a decade, enabling them to truly understand and stand beside their clients over the years. And while we work hard, we also play hard: we have monthly Third Thursday gatherings; our Managing Partner told us to get outside to enjoy a solar eclipse; and we host summer family events where we attend baseball games and go apple picking. We are given the chance to get to know our co-workers beyond work, and that enables us to have better working relationships.”
“I’m a person who enjoys a team approach. Bowditch recognizes the importance of all positions within the firm, which allows talent and resources from all departments to come together to achieve the best possible result for clients. This makes working at the firm rewarding for me and provides value to clients. I don’t wonder if what I’m doing is valued, I know it.”
