Our culture of embracing and living each of our core values in every aspect of what we do allows us the privilege of making a positive difference in people’s lives.

We’ve created a dynamic, fun, and fast changing environment where each UpRighter has the freedom to be creative, take initiative and make things happen. We pride ourselves on our transparent and open communication, our laid back family atmosphere, and our learning and development opportunities.

Our benefits are designed to support the whole you; at work and at home.

From traditional benefits like health insurance to an Unlimited PTO Policy, Casual Dress Code, various intramural sports teams, Free Pantry and Tap Room, happy hours/gatherings, and video game room to keep you physically, financially, and socially at the top of your game. But that’s not all...

A Place With Perks

Health Care

We want to keep you and yours happy and healthy. Multiple health plans to meet whatever your needs may be.

Student Loan Repayment

We're one of the first employers in the nation to offer company-sponsored contributions to pay off student loan debt. We want to help you achieve financial freedom. This benefit will cut years off of your payments and save you thousands of dollars in interest.

Unlimited PTO Policy

All work and no play makes jack a dull boy. Each full-time, salaried employee is entitled to unlimited vacation days. We empower our clients by taking the time to understand their individual needs and we empower you to take the time you need to refresh, revitalize, and relax when you need it.

Giving Back

We have a commitment to give back to our local communities and we encourage and support all UpRighters charitable efforts across many causes including Race Judicata which supports the Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation; Autism Speaks, Chicago Cares, and clothing drives around the holidays for local Chicago shelters.

Casual Dress Code

At UpRight Law we hold ourselves to a higher standard not only when dealing with customers but also when working in a professional environment. We strive to create a work environment that is comfortable for all employees. We believe you should be able to dress in clothing that allows you to be comfortable while maintaining a sharp casual look.

UpRight Tap and Game Room

Free food, Games and Beer! Who doesn’t love an impromptu office happy hour?! At UpRight Tap, we have a plethora of offerings including salty snacks, candy, whole fruit, cookies, and soft drinks offered each day. Feel like a beer and games? Grab your fellow UpRighters, belly up to the office kegerator and enjoy having fun while playing video games, board games, foosball, or ping pong.

Intramural Teams / Fantasy Sports Leagues

UpRight is full of sports fanatics. Whichever sport you love, we have fantasy sports leagues or intramural teams to satisfy the active competitor in you.

Happy Hours / Fun Events

UpRighters work hard and therefore get to play hard too! We celebrate our successes with happy hours, catered lunches, potlucks, quarterly event celebrations, and holiday parties. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and have fun with Halloween Costume contests, Ugly Sweater Contests, and in-office mini-golf tournaments to name a few.

Employee Discounts and Voluntary Benefits

Depending on what’s important to you, through various vendors, all employees have access to a variety of discounts including travel, mobile, technology, retail, entertainment and more.

Student Loan
Repayment Program

Professional Development

Our goal is simple, foster a continual learning environment where we all have the opportunity to understand and educate each other, our Clients, and our Partner Attorneys. With a blended process of both online and classroom learning, we’ve created UpRight University where each course has been designed to deliver an authentic whole brain experience uniquely meshing idea and practice. UpRight University focuses on learning that challenges, inspires, motivates and facilitates cross functional learning to empower each UpRighter to be successful.

Transparent Feedback

There is an opportunity for all employees to develop as individuals and reach personal success while contributing to a business that they really care about. Leveling Up is a quarterly recognition and performance development process designed to build a highly engaged workforce to achieve business objectives. In addition to discussing performance, this is an opportunity for each UpRighter to sit down with their manager and discuss desired work experiences, job opportunities, career paths, and determine how they will work together to ensure success.
