McKool Smith Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Work-life balance in a firm might sound like a ridiculous thing, but there are only so many hours in a day a person can work. There has to be some greater empathy for the lawyers.


Pros : This firm is really going places, it has grown tremendously fast over the past few years and working there I really get a sense of optimism and the potential for the future. The legal talent working there is often brilliant, and being part of that team fills me with confidence as well as always being helped by very smart colleagues when I come across problems.
Cons : It's stressful to work in a place with so many smart, talented people because I don't know when, if ever, I'll be able to move up the ladder. The competition is intense and I know that there are many there who simply are better lawyers than me.

Diversity

McKool Smith is, and has been, committed to creating an inclusive, open and respectful culture comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds, where each and every individual is given a platform for success. We recognize that true diversity encompasses an infinite range of individual characteristics and experiences, including race, color, religion, nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, mental or physical disability, genetic information, and other factors. The firm's goal is to create a work environment where the unique attributes, perspectives, backgrounds, skills, and abilities of each employee are valued.

Summer associate program

Our summer associate program is similar to our associate program. We have substantive work to do, and we enlist summer associates to do that work. Summer associates draft motions and discovery requests, meet with clients, attend depositions, and assist with trial preparation. They work directly with attorneys at all levels, from the first year associate to the corner-office principal. Along the way, they receive meaningful feedback and guidance. Each summer associate is assigned two mentors, one associate and one principal, who ensure that the summer associate has diverse work assignments and is introduced to the attorneys in the firm.
