"screwed over creditors in Hashfast bankruptcy case"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Feb 13, 2019

Advice to law firm management: you already got rid of her, that's good. I would follow up with all the creditors she represented in the case and see how they're doing.

Pros: if you want to make money they'll have the resources to get your ambulance chasing cases. however, i don't know if this will help your soul

Cons: Ashley McDow got nothing for her creditors in the HashFast bankruptcy case while making a boatload on us. No good. Never followed up with us.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Ashley McDow because she did not represent her creditors who trusted her with having stolen money returned to them. instead got us wrapped up in one legal process after another siphoning all the money away from creditors

Favorite Things About this Firm: my favorite thing is getting fucked in the ass having this firm represent me in the Hashfast bankruptcy case.

"Great firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Mar 21, 2018

Advice to law firm management: For the most part, you are doing a good job. And, of course, you can't make everyone happy all the time.

Pros: Baker is probably the best run firm I've ever worked for. They care about their employees and it shows.

Cons: There are jerks at every firm, but life in a law firm is a pressure cooker, and attorneys are known to be hard to work for. The staff can also be petty and negative.

Partners to Avoid and Why: I can't think of any partners to avoid. They are all pretty nice. Everyone has their moment, but I haven't observed any true abusers.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Decent, responsible, aware, wants to do what's right, caring (for real), tries to listen, wants success for everyone, not greedy

"A Rewarding Firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Dec 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Lookout for people that are at risk of burning out or people that looks like they are burning out and offer to help them out before they burnout.

Pros: Hard work is rewarded well here at this firm. The harder you work the more you will be rewarded with bonuses and extra benefits.

Cons: For some people the push for hard work can be extremely stressful for them and it can cause them to burn out.

"This Firm is Decent"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Oct 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: This firm needs to do a better job at staying on top of employees and work gossip. This does nothing but set people back and is unprofessional in the long run.

Pros: When I first started with this firm I went through a long training process that really helped me feel more secure in my position. I rarely had any questions and if I did management was always there to help me get through.

Cons: This firm felt a bit like high school at times. Staff would gossip constantly and management just didn't seem to care. When it came to the workplace being friendly and professional, this firm just simply fell flat.

"Great Work/Life Balance"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jul 01, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I think that leadership should make things more clear to those who want to move up within the firm. The waters are a bit muddy as they stand right now.

Pros: Leadership at this firm really tries to foster a work environment that people enjoy. The work/life balance here is the best of any firm I've been with, and I've been with a few. The salary and benefits are also pretty good.

Cons: There doesn't seem to be a lot of upward mobility here. I haven't seen anyone promoted since I've been here, and there isn't a clear path one can follow if they desire to climb the ladder
