Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Treat your employees with greater care, as nobody wants to work long hours for extended periods of time. Add a little more care to your customers and in turn, they will appreciate it and word of mouth will spread.

Pros: This firm is the a great fit for workers that are starting out. The firm is rather average, which isn't a flaw. This is a good place for starting one's career.

Cons: At Richards Kibbe &Orbe LLP, the endless hours can be daunting. It's a good place for getting started but if you really are looking to push your career to the next level it's either time to move on or overlook this one.
