"Very Modern Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

I'd like to see us expand in the right direction and hire some new attorney's and other professionals. I feel as though having more hands to help during work hours will help ease everyone's work load.

Pros : I really enjoy the fact that this firm has kept up to date in regards to the latest advancements in the field. I also really enjoy working with everyone and the pay is excellent.
Cons : I have seen other workers take on more than they could handle on more occasions than I'd like to admit. There have been times in which I had to work well after usual office hours myself.
