Review:

"A Great Start For Any Lawyer"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

I think there needs to be more focus on making sure the relationships and trust we build with clients remains the more important aspect of the goals at the firm.

Pros : I really think that the firm is great when it comes to lawyers just starting out. The pay is great and I was happy with the benefits when I worked there. The associates who worked there also knew what they were doing.
Cons : The culture surrounding the firm was too oriented with financial gains. That is understandable for any business, but sometimes, it seems like our relationships with the clients was sacrificed for the monetary goals.
