"Practice With Great History"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

The firm should place more effort in working with other firms which would benefit some of the cases we handle. I also believe it would help to bring more clients to the practice.

Pros : One of the things I learned when I first started working this firm is that they do their utmost to develop a great relationship with their clients. The firm truly places great importance in maintaining their reputation among the community and clients. I think that their work culture motivates me to not only work hard on my cases, but also on my associates' cases and projects.
Cons : The firm's single flaw is an unwillingness to network with other firms. Most networking with other firms is usually done by individual associates' efforts.
