"A Practice Where Professionalism Is The Law"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Increasing the pay and benefits for lower tier lawyers is something that I think would be great. I also think there should be more employee events to help ease some of the stress.

Pros : The superiors at the firm are all about importance of quality. I really find the work environment to be helpful when it comes to focusing on the client cases and goals. Any help I need is always met with guidance and the resources I need to solve them.
Cons : Sometimes, the work and hours can get a little overwhelming. I also don't think the pay is that great. But the importance of the experience I gain here is something that I think will end up being more beneficial.
