"Top Real Estate Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Be sure to always keep backups of all of your work and to take notes on all of your meetings in case you were to lose something important.

Pros : The firm offers competitive pay and benefits. They are flexible with time off and try not to make their partners overwork themselves. There is plenty of work to go around so there will always be as much or a little work as you want.
Cons : There is a slight communication problem in the firm and some of the equipment is outdated. They need to update the way that they are communicating with everyone and sometimes important things will get lost along the way.
