Review:

"A Refreshing Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

The billing process needs to be completely overhauled, as the firm is losing funds because of this simple problem. If better billing practices were adopted the firm would be very successful.

Pros : Lawyers have the ability to approach cases differently. At the firm I was able to handle cases in a manner that I was accustomed to. The management did not force me to conform my practices to a set standard of the firm. By allowing this I was able to be successful with my cases.
Cons : The billing of clients should be updated. Clients are not followed up with to ensure they pay their bills, which then causes a loss for the firm and the attorneys.
