"Quality over Quantity"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

The firm should offer better bonuses and packages for the associates here. I think something like that could be motivating for me.

Pros : One of the things this firm stresses to the associates such as myself is that success comes from making sure our clients are happy. That is one of the reasons why I like working here because the firm is all about taking cases that the attorneys can deal with efficiently on a timely basis and avoiding too many projects.
Cons : The pay and benefits at the firm could be a little better since it's one of the things I hear other attorneys here talk about. It isn't a big deal though.
