Review:

"A Five Star Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Be prepared to brush up on your bird law, because you will be dealing with it on a daily basis here.

Pros : Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP is not your average starter firm. This is a finisher firm, a firm fit only for five star lawyers.
Cons : They mostly deal with bird law, although they have been known to handle some divorce cases. Some troublesome clients are not turned away.
