Adams and Reese LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Hire more women, period. The perks are decent but could be better. Consider implementing a more formalized training program for new hires.

Pros: The work is interesting and you gain good experience. Management is solid. It's a very friendly environment. No back stabbing here.

Cons: The atmosphere varies depending on which office you work at. Some are stuck in the old boys' club mentality. Being in the south is not an excuse.

Advice to law firm management: First off I would like to see our firm expand its current office, since it feels very confined at the moment after we recently hired a couple of new staff members. I also think that we should start to diversify our work and take on more interesting cases.

Pros: There is plenty of work to go around so there's not much idle time, which is a plus in my book. There is excellent room for growth and starting salary and benefits. Everyone is very friendly and will help you at the drop of a hat.

Cons: Work can be quite dull at times. We don't take on enough interesting cases in my opinion. The office feels somewhat confined and overcrowded at times.

Diversity


Diversity is not new at Adams and Reese and is not the work of one individual or committee, but rather the work of our entire firm. Through dedication, creativity, hard work and leadership of many culturally diverse individuals coming together, our diversity momentum grows stronger every year. Our appreciation of the unique differences among us and how we benefit from the diverse backgrounds, experiences and talents of our attorneys, advisors and staff enhances our service to our clients while it enriches the lives of both our employees and the communities in which we work and live.

The Adams and Reese Diversity Committee is comprised of the Diversity Committee Chair, the Recruiting Partner, the Partner for Associates, an Executive Committee Appointee, three Practice Group Leaders, the Chief Marketing Officer and additional representatives throughout the firm's footprint.

Our minority attorney committee also meets regularly with the firm's Diversity Chairwoman to further develop and promote diversity through events targeted to other minority attorneys, clients and community members. This committee has successfully held numerous minority receptions and events in conjunction with the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Bayou Classic and the Essence Music Festival, as well as sponsorships including the Urban League, Diversity Summits, Black Business Networks, Minority Bar Association events, National Minority AIDS Council efforts, as well as endowed professorships and scholarships at historically black universities.

Summer associate program


The Adams and Reese Summer Associate Program offers second-year law students the chance to work in a fast paced legal environment, while challenging law students with real world experiences that include claim investigation, legal analysis and writing, courtroom and deposition observation and special training seminars. Summer Associates are fully integrated into Adams and Reese working along side attorneys writing briefs, attending closings, preparing for trials and attending strategy sessions.

Each fall, Adams and Reese hires a select group of second year law students to participate in the Summer Associate Program. Summer Associates are offered a six-week session to share in our culture. We regard a six-week program as an ideal time frame for us to assess your professional potential and for summer associates to make a well-informed career decision about us.

We generally offer summer associate programs in all of our offices except the Nashville Music Row and Washington, DC offices. The program size varies from office to office and year to year based on anticipated hiring needs. We do not offer a 1L program nor do we consider first year law students for our Summer Associate Program.

We view our Summer Associate Program as our primary source for recruiting our new associates. We invite law students with excellent academic records and well-rounded backgrounds to take a look at how we run our organization. We are looking for people who are motivated and personable and whose educational and professional accomplishments forecast future achievements.
