Review:

"BEWARE OF THE DRAGON LADY - ENRICA BRUNO...."

Former Employee - Reviewed on July 19, 2017

GET A DIVORCE FROM ENRICA........................ and start your own practice. It would be much better for you and the legal community. After all everyone knows she only started her own firm because she was fired from her last firm and no one wanted to hire her. Well at least that is what I heard in the legal community.

Pros : The only good thing about this firm is the staff people who work their, other than that I wouldn't take a job here.
Cons : Although Alessandro Steinfl is great to work with, beware of the dragon lady....... When she is not yelling at people and spitting on then when she talks, she is bragging about how wonderful she is and why people do not like her. If she would take some direction from her husband (Alessandro) and learn how to treat people with respect this could be a great place. The staff is young and everyone is just trying to do their job and shouldn't have to come to work in fear of what the day is going to look like. The amount of people of who have come and gone should tell them SHE is A problem.... But it's her name on the door, so I am just going to sit back and watch her destroy herself.
