Review:

"A Firm that is Never Boring"

Former Employee - Reviewed on October 23, 2017

I would like to see more people working at this firm. I would also like to see some of the office staff joke around, and sit down and be willing to have a candid conversation more often in between work.

Pros : There's always a nice variety of interesting cases to take on while in the office. The pay is also great and everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Cons : I felt as though we were well understaffed while I was working here. I also felt as though the tone is a bit too serious here.
