Review:

"I received great training here as an intern"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

I would like to see management really get on top of things and make sure that everyone is on the same page and I would like to get some of the rude attorney's get lectured or replaced.

Pros : I received a lot of help here while I was an intern and I greatly enjoyed my interactions with most of the attorneys here. There was always plenty of work to go around as well.
Cons : Unfortunately, there is a real lack of leadership at this firm. At times it can feel like a real free for all. I always felt as though some of the attorneys were really standoffish.
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
