Review:

"Great Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on October 23, 2017

I like the way the firm handled everything, except trying to keep people around. You should work harder at doing that so that way the business continues to grow even more.

Pros : Working at this firm was a great learning experience and made me a better attorney and person. Everyone here is a great friend.
Cons : I had to move on and do my own thing as I felt like there was not enough room for me to keep growing and staying with the business.
