Review:

"Excellent Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Cutting back on the work hours for associates during the week and having to work a lot fewer weekends would help tremendously.

Pros : This is a firm above the rest in that the associates all pull together to help one another out on difficult cases.
Cons : The wage is probably the lowest, or close to it, that I have seen for the amount of work that is expected of you here.
