Our firm has varied opportunities for employment.

Gentry Locke is one of the largest law firms in southwestern Virginia.

While we are a corporate and litigation law firm for the most part, our work environment has evolved to become collaborative, comfortable, and very collegial. Employees enjoy a generous benefits package, reimbursement of professional dues and seminar or Continuing Legal Education (CLE) attendance, and a beautiful office filled with art and expansive views of downtown and the surrounding mountains. We have created a fast-paced, productive environment that is a very enjoyable place to work.



  • Firm Structure

    Gentry Locke utilizes a team environment. We work together with complementary skill sets for the greater good — the needs of our clients. Because our services cover a broad range of business needs, as well as services for individuals, we utilize a Practice Group structure. While there are differing levels of attorney associations within the firm, status is a minor consideration.

    Whether attorney or staff, everyone is approachable, and each employee is treated with respect and courtesy.

  • Diversity

    Gentry Locke understands that each person has unique attributes and backgrounds, and we benefit from these diverse qualities. We value differences, including life and work experiences, personal and religious values, work practice, family responsibilities, age, race, gender identity, ethnicity, disability, and cultural backgrounds. We strive to recruit attorneys and staff with outstanding legal skills and ethics, as well as diverse backgrounds, to allow us to better serve our clients.

  • Technology and Environment

    Gentry Locke utilizes advanced technology within the firm and is committed to consistently implementing new technology and equipment as it evolves. The firm provides top-notch training to all employees in-house. Gentry Locke is a place where growth and skill are as valued as integrity and dedication.

At Gentry Locke, our firm culture and environment will enable you to grow in experience and wisdom. In addition to generous compensation, we hope you will enjoy the satisfaction of being part of our “family” as we continually strive to exceed the expectations of those we serve.
