"Very Busy"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

I would like to see less weekends going for work. Giving the employees more time off could make this a wonderful place to work.

Pros : A criminal attorney worth working for. I was treated with nothing but respect while at this firm. I was able to apply all my teachings to real world cases while there.
Cons : It stays so busy that you rarely have time to spend with your family. Long hours and weekends were the norm.
