Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs, LLC Reviews

- Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Except few senior attorneys everything is great at the law firm. You must always stay alert and never show lenient attitude at work.

Pros: Family atmosphere, while family doesn't always get along, but here everyone look out for and support each other. Entrepreneurialism is encouraged. Work/life balance is great for upper-level attorneys, for others it is decent. Ability to choose for whom you work.

Cons: Some senior attorneys act like that you should know things even if you haven't been trained on those matters. Some senior attorneys are rude & disrespectful and make you feel like you're nothing in front of them.

We know that we have to understand your business in order to protect it, a philosophy established by our founding fathers. The Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs partnership was founded in 1913 between Frank J. Rockwell, a former county prosecutor and future mayor of Akron, and Princeton University Graduate Charles T. Grant. An esteemed labor and employment attorney, Lisle M. Buckingham joined in 1929, and Gillum H. Doolittle, a distinguished trial lawyer, joined in 1934. Finally, Edmund Burroughs, a Harvard Law School graduate and former editor of the Harvard Law Review, joined in 1943. We have continued to add talent and evolve as times change. However, the integrity upon which our firm was built is still reflected in our people and in the services that we provide. Today we are recognized as one of the top business law firms in the region, but we are so much more than that. Find out why Buckingham is the law firm of choice for hundreds of Northeast Ohio businesses.
