Review:

"They will work you to the bone at this law firm, beware of burnout after a short time of working here"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

You may want to keep looking if you are the sort of person who needs a little time off to decompress from the stresses of the job. This one will definitely challenge you in ways you did not expect.

Pros : As with most firms, the best part is the experience you will gain at this job. From day one you will get to work in the nitty-gritty of case law and client intake. The pay is solid and on par with industry standards.
Cons : Associates will tell you that this firm is not the place to work if you want to take it easy in life. You will put your nose to the grindstone from the first day on the job here. Many associates and partners alike will routinely put in 70 hour work weeks on top of the other commitments they have with the firm.
