"Family Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Hire a few more employees and keep doing what you do because the people who work for you and your customers are happy with it. Keep improving and don't give up on anyone or yourselves.

Pros : The best they deliver at has to be the family feel for both the employees and customers. They do this by making you feel at home and like you're part of the team and your voice and participation matters, they listen.
Cons : The worst part has to be simply the small size of the firm. If they ever become extremely popular they will have to get a lot more employees or turn a lot of people away. They can be a little slow on the side of things but it's not bad.
