Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I really do wish that the partners would make themselves more available to the associates in the office. I think it would help the firm out a lot.

Pros: The associates at this firm are very team oriented and there are many people who are experts in their chosen field. This is a great place to learn and I enjoy coming to work every day.

Cons: Sometimes it feels like the partners are never in the office. They probably are, but nobody sees them. They aren't very accessible and I haven't had a chance to get to know them.

Pro bono

We consider ourselves a leader in representing disenfranchised individuals without access to justice. We have championed the rights of the disabled in a landmark against the Chicago Transit Authority, the lawyers of the Guantanamo detainees with respect to electronic monitoring of their privileged communications, two death row inmates later pardoned by the Governor of Illinois, and parents of children displaced by the massive closures of Chicago Public Schools. The Firm's lawyers also regularly work as volunteer attorneys handling political asylum and immigration cases for the National Immigration Justice Center. We also have partnered with a wide range of legal service agencies, including Lawyer's for the Creative Arts, Legal Assistance Foundation of Chicago, and the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, on both individual and impact litigation.

Our founding partners - two highly respected law professors at Northwestern University and two former members of a prominent Chicago firm - were soon joined by like-minded colleagues also seeking an alternative to the large law firm environment. We have grown steadily ever si...
