Job Description

Contigo Centro Legal invites applications from dynamic and dedicated litigators for the position of Bilingual (English & Spanish) Associate Litigation Attorney.




Located in North Kansas City, Contigo Centro Legal is a rapidly growing bilingual personal injury law firm that is passionate about serving Latino individuals and their families.  Contigo brings unparalleled legal expertise to the Latino community that no other law firm can offer.  Far too often, Latino individuals and families seek legal help from law firms that lack the expertise and resources to handle their personal injury cases, and unfortunately their cases settle for much less than fair compensation. Contigo opened its doors to give families a legal option rarely found in Latino communities.


Contigo Centro Legal maintains a unique and professionally advantageous partnership with Langdon & Emison, a firm recognized as one of the nation's leading personal injury law firms by U.S. News and World Report and other professional organizations. Langdon & Emison attorneys are consistently recognized as Lawyer of the Year and Top Lawyer in their respective practice areas, earning spots on the "Best Lawyers" rosters in personal injury, product liability, trucking accident, railroad and mass torts litigation.



Contigo Centro Legal seeks a passionate and compassionate litigator to zealously represent clients in court cases and other adversarial legal proceedings such as arbitrations, mediations and administrative law proceedings. The candidate must be adept at relationship-building with clients and familiar with all aspects of court pleadings and processes.


They also seek a well-spoken advocate, comfortable assessing cases with clients and presenting in front of judges and juries. The ideal candidate is highly collaborative with all members of the firm, appreciative of a family work atmosphere, and able to balance hard work with enjoyment at the office.   



  • Juris Doctorate
  • Speak fluent Spanish
  • Hold active license to practice law in Missouri (or ability to waive in)
  • Have at least 2 years of legal experience; personal injury experience preferred
