Review:

"A Decent Place to Work That Values Work and Life Balance"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Try to make connections with senior members of the firm by doing good work and not getting caught up in the politics of the firm. It's up to you to a large degree to make your own way in seeking out more responsibility and getting noticed for your work. This can help you gain promotions and a higher salary.

Pros : The work atmosphere is pretty laid back, especially for a law firm and the partners respect that employees have lives away from work. The pay is pretty good and the clients are good ones to work with.
Cons : The firm is lacking in organization in some areas and there is a fair amount of turnover. The non-lawyer staff is not always treated well. Politics plays too much of a part in the running of the firm, which is detrimental to the operations of the firm.
