"A Great Firm That Really Cares About ItsClients"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

I would like to see us spend more time away from the firm and have mandated time in which we go out and do fun things together after work. I feel like the work environment is too serious for me a lot of the time, which really puts a strain on me.

Pros : I love this firm, we really care about our clients and I have seen my attorneys time and time again go above the call of duty in regards to helping out their client's in their cases.
Cons : There tends to be a very serious tone at this firm. But since we are dealing with very serious cases, that is to be expected.
