Review:

" Law Firm with Some Culture"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The law office is losing track of having a much more presentable presence in terms of culture and growth. The firm should embrace positive changes.

Pros : The law firm is composed of a management team that has made it easier for them to collaborate with staff. Employees do have a saying in contributing to improving the environment of the law office.
Cons : The law firm has had to consider working on its presence in terms of the culture and the way it presented itself professionally. There is not much investment being placed into the firm to grow.
