Join Short Cressman & Burgess

Founded in 1915, Short Cressman & Burgess is a Seattle-based law firm with a long-standing reputation as a premier construction firm.  While the firm is proud of this reputable industry position, since its founding, the firm has evolved as client needs and the marketplace has changed.  SCB has encompassed these changes to broaden its practice to include a broader range of legal services.

We are always interested in reviewing materials from qualified candidates in our core practice areas of construction, environmental and natural resources, land use and development, municipal, business, tribal, complex litigation, real estate, family law and employment law.

Through our cross-practice collaborations and teams, we have consistently delivered demonstrative value to our clients and advanced their legal objectives.  Many SCB employees have decades of tenure with the firm.  SCB offers competitive pay rates and benefit packages for eligible employees.  SCB is an Equal Opportunity Employer that has a skilled workforce committed to supporting the firm’s practice through a team-oriented approach in a professional work environment. 

We are looking for capable and talented lawyers who can help us provide our clients with representation of the highest professional quality in a friendly and collegial manner. We value teamwork, initiative, commitment, and success, and enjoy supportive working relationships among all of our attorneys and support staff.
