Review:

"Great Experience"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

Keep trusting new employees with responsibility and work, but the workload needs to be lightened, asits way too much for someone so fresh out of law school.

Pros : Working here is a great opportunity to gain experience not offered in law school, and I learned quite a bit.Helping those who have been mistreated is a goal of the firm and makes me feel good inside.
Cons : There is an overload of work at this firm.It is very difficult to invest the necessary time for the path of promotion. New employees are handed a large amount of responsibility on day 1.
