Review:

"A Prestigious Work Firm that Demands the Most from its Staff"

Current Employee - Reviewed on October 23, 2017

I would like to see more interns working at this firm. When I started working here there were only two interns and I felt as though I was somewhat of a burden due to my lack of knowledge.

Pros : The pay is great, everyone is passionate about their work, and the staff is very accommodating. The cases are always interesting as well.
Cons : It can be very daunting when you first start working here as an intern. Everyone is VERY knowledgeable and takes their work very seriously.
