Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Great place filled with lots of good info for the future, I do wish they would create more a group atmosphere at the place.

Pros : I came in new here and have learned a lot. Lots of help and great people here. Overall a great place to learn the first few steps in your career.
Cons : Management can be almost off putting in some cases, I feel more friendliness would go a long way with this law firm.
