Review:

"A Flexible Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

Management should implement a policy for last minute adjustments or problems. There should be a set procedure available to attorneys for these instances.

Pros : The schedule of the firm was very flexible. Office hours were not standard, expected office hours. This was simply because of the type of cases and clients the firm represented. I enjoyed the flexibility of the firm.
Cons : Although I did enjoy the flexibility of the schedule, there were times where case schedules were completely unpredictable and required last minute adjustments.
