Review:

"An Awesome Law Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

I would advise the management to not accept so many cases, so that attorneys can devote more attention to clients and deliver quality work.

Pros : The cases that the firm handles are fairly complex in nature. Even with cases being somewhat difficult, everyone was able to come together and find solutions to various problems that were encountered. We were able to have equal input into cases and solving various problems.
Cons : The worst part of the firm would be the many scheduling conflicts. Even though we worked to solve problems together, the scheduling of cases was not good. The amount of cases the firm accepted were far more than we could handle in a timely fashion. We were not able to devote as much time as a client needed.
