Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Develop better communication skills and make known what you need. Keep lines of communication open and don't worry about hurting someone's feelings if it is constructive.

This firm has a great working relationship with each other and everyone is so friendly. The salary and benefits are generous and you have opportunities to grow in the firm. Attorneys are helpful and personable.

There can be miscommunication when it gets busy. This can cause unneeded stress that could have been prevented if expectations are made clearer.

Current Employee


A different kind of law firm since 1915. Bernstein Shur Sawyer & Nelson is a New England-based law firm that advises clients from across the U.S. and around the world. Our 100+ award-winning attorneys and professionals practice in more than 20 critical areas and a variety of industries. While we’re proud of our roots, accolades, and wide-ranging expertise, it’s not only our substance that sets us apart; it’s also our approach. We relish simplifying the complex. We believe that sophisticated doesn’t have to mean stuffy, and we’re not just accessible—we’re approachable. We fight hard for our clients, but calm persistence and collaboration are often our weapons of choice. Most importantly, we believe that being mindful of our clients’ bottom lines is ultimately better for our own. Over the past century, these values have become the essence of Bernstein Shur. And they produce better results—and better experiences—for our clients.
