"Great Receptions"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on August 28, 2018

Advice to law firm management: V&E should be more open about their interview process and post more opportunities for law students at a variety of their offices.

Pros: V&E has a prominent name and they host the most welcoming receptions. I really enjoy meeting with all of their employees in lots of different locations.

Cons: It is very difficult to get an interview at V&E, even if your law school has a relationship with them. They should do something about this.

Partners to Avoid and Why: I have not had enough time to interact with the partners in order to be able to post a review about this, but I have enjoyed the ones that I have met briefly.

Favorite Things About this Firm: I love that V&E is known as a Texas firm but it also has offices all over, and it also has a relationship with schools in cities where it doesn't have offices, such as Tulane.

Advice to law firm management: There is no shortage of cases to work on, so be sure to do your homework and prepare for anything.

Pros: I shopped around a lot before taking this job and I know I made the right choice. They are wonderful and will treat you like family.

Cons: There is a lot of work to be done, but everyone is always willing to help out. Ask for help and you will get it.

"Good Firm but Lacks Upward Mobility"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on June 05, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I think there should be much more opportunities to move up in the firm.

Pros: Good Firm but Lacks Upward Mobility

Cons: There isn't all that much room to advance here, which I wish there wasbecause I enjoy the work. It's also very difficult to make partner. So this probably won't be a law firmthat you'd want to stay at for a long period of time.
