“I moved to Rochester from New York City several years ago. I was initially hesitant to move to a smaller city, but I am now extremely glad that I did. Rochester has a lot to offer - it has a rich musical culture, festivals abound in the summer, and you can live close to downtown and still be a short drive or bike ride away from the many hiking trails and lakes around the Rochester area. You can’t beat the quality of life upstate!”
- Lucrecia Knapp, Associate

Choosing the Right Firm

While life is a journey, your career path doesn’t have to take too many turns. You might have chosen the wrong path initially, or you are simply looking for change. Many of our lateral hires have moved from larger metropolitan areas, looking for a quality of life that escaped them.

Whatever your reason for looking, we invite you to apply to Harter Secrest & Emery. We regularly seek to hire a limited number of experienced associates who began practice elsewhere. We look for bright, personable and motivated individuals who share our values: the pursuit of excellence for our clients, a commitment to the communities in which we practice, and mutual respect for each other.
