Review:

"Professional Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

There needs to be more supervising being done from management. Advancement opportunities should be offered to the staff. Management needs to work on how to effectively lead their staff.

Pros : The office provides an environment full of professionals. The staff creates a great working culture. The place is affordable in rates for clients in comparison to other firms in the area.
Cons : Management sometimes suffers from organization. Some of the staff has a poor attitude. Gossip runs through the firm, making the setting feel like there is a lack of adults.
