Review:

"Very Diverse Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

This firm should take on more diverse cases and more cases in general if they want to continue to grow. I would also like to see the starting salary increased.

Pros : This is a very diverse firm that has plenty of professional's that have expertise in different fields. I received a lot of help at this firm when it came down to crunch time.
Cons : The starting pay is a little bit on the low side in my opinion. It can also feel quite slow at times since we have so many professionals working on a wide variety of cases at all times.
