What We Offer
We invite you to view the job listing page to learn more about the job opportunities at KDV.
At KDV, we value teamwork above all else. As a result, we have worked hard to establish a culture that promotes collaboration and emphasizes the importance of mentoring our junior associates. As part of our commitment to the development of our attorneys, KDV’s partners are required to dedicate a specific amount of hours annually to “hands on” associate mentoring.
Our firm takes pride in being innovative and progressive. One critical example is KDV’s dedication of resources to ensure the firm runs as efficiently as possible. Unlike many firms our size, we offer our attorneys and staff access to internal professional services departments (Human Resources, Marketing and IT), which strengthens our commitment to clients and the long-term growth and success of our firm.
We are proud to offer competitive compensation with the opportunity for an annual bonus. KDV also provides impressive benefits, including: medical, dental, vision, life insurance, long-term and short-term disability insurance, healthcare and dependent care flexible spending accounts, and a 401K program. Our employees enjoy nine federal holidays plus two floating holidays to be used at their discretion. KDV champions the need for rest and relaxation in order to maintain a healthy staff.

COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
KDV is dedicated to promoting diversity by continually searching for ways to broaden and enhance our recruiting efforts.
KDV is one of 64 firms to achieve Mansfield 2.0 Certification for 2019. Our firm is participating in the Mansfield Rule 3.0 certification program to further enhance diversity among its leadership. KDV was one of only 65 law firms nationwide to participate and will be one of 99 firms to participate in Mansfield 3.0. The Mansfield Rule Certification 2.0 measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered at least 30 percent women lawyers, lawyers of color and LGBTQ+ lawyers for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, formal client pitch opportunities and senior lateral positions. Mansfield 3.0 will also include lawyers with disabilities.
In May 2016, KDV was proudly ranked 28th in Law360’s “Top 100 Firms for Minority Attorneys” survey. KDV is committed to promoting diversity through active recruitment, development, and retention of a wide-ranging group of people. The firm’s workforce—lawyers and staff—throughout each of its offices, reflects these varied values.
