"Great firm to learn the ropes at"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

I'd like to see this firm expand its current office location and hire new staff members to help out on cases and help out interns such as myself.

Pros : I worked here as an intern and learned the in's and out's while here. I enjoyed the fact that everyone is very friendly and always willing to lend you a hand when in need.
Cons : I felt as though the office was slightly small and that we could have used more staff members to help out on cases. I also thought that the cases were somewhat tedious.
