"Was Very Close To My Home and Was aGreat Working Environment"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

This firm needs to keep up with the times and adapt to the new ways of doing things. I'd also like to see some new attorneys or interns hired since we seemed to be understaffed while I was working there.

Pros : This firm was very close to my home, which meant that I could come back to work on cases late into the night if I felt up to it. Everyone was also very friendly and told me I could call them anytime that I needed help.
Cons : I felt as though this law firm was a little bit too strict in terms of the way things were done. They tend to be somewhat old school and some of the way things are done tends to be very confusing and hard to pick up.
