"Respectable Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

The firm needs to work on implementing better resources that are new in technology. Management should work on how to provide a better line of communication in the office.

Pros : It's an environment in which good pay and various amounts of workload are offered. The firm has a high degree of respect amongst its clients.
Cons : There is a lack of a line of communication. The resources at the firm are very old. Sometimes attorneys take on too much of the workload and do not spend an adequate amount of time with their clients.
