Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on November 15, 2020

Advice to law firm management: Keep up your great environment, and belief that all things are possible with the right people.

Pros: JMBM is a very special firm with some amazing people at all levels of staff, administration and attorneys. It is a high power firm with attorneys and clients you might expect at a much larger natinoal firm -- many of the lawyers moved laterally from such larger firm to JMBM. That makes an exciting and demanding environment for professionals who really want to take care of their clients in a supportive environment. If you strive for excellence and are devoted to the practice, this is one of the best law firms you will every find.

Cons: Let's face it, not everyone wants to work hard, but hard work comes with the practice of law. And you can tell that the people really care about one another at this firm. You can also tell that they care about helping their clients accomplish their goals. The Firm's success makes some people jealous.

Advice to law firm management: Get out of the business, you are doing everyone a disservice. Or at least offer a money back guarantee if you don't get any results, which you don't

Pros: The firm will tell you all you need to hear and be available before they collect your money. They call back, and are very nice at this point

Cons: Once they get your retainer, they basically will burn through the entire amount and mark it up to research. So basically you will be paying these attorneys how to learn to be lawyers

Partners to Avoid and Why: Avoid Michael Brown aka M. Anthony Brown aka Tony Brown. My guess is he has so many names because his bad reviews are following him and he need to keep changing aliases. Next week he will be M. A. Brown or some other combination. This guy is the worst attorney I've every run across

Favorite Things About this Firm: Probably the best thing about this firm was getting rid of them. They wasted my time, money, etc and it was such a relief to dump them. Wish I would have seen the reviews earlier. They will be out of business soon as I'm surprised they have any clients left

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Job type: Full time

Diversity


JMBM was founded in 1981 in Los Angeles, California -- one of the most diverse cities in one of the most diverse states in the nation. While our law firm grows, it continues to reflect the diverse population of California and the nation. Diversity is integral to the success of our firm. We believe that people from differing backgrounds and cultures help us to understand our clients' changing needs and to develop creative solutions that achieve our clients' goals. We continue to be committed to achieving a workplace environment in which all lawyers and staff feel welcomed, valued and included.

Summer associate program


Our summer program provides a unique experience for law students to learn firsthand what makes JMBM a great place for lawyers and clients. We hire a small number of law students from top law schools across the country to take part in our program in our Los Angeles office. Our summer associates are provided opportunities for real participation in the high-quality legal work our Firm does every day. Our program is designed to provide the foundation for a long and successful career at JMBM.

We are looking for summer associates who are eager to take on responsibility and can handle it. Summer associates work directly with Partners to provide legal solutions to the Firm's ongoing matters - an experience similar to that of a first-year associate. Summer associates are provided feedback on their assignments so as to encourage problem solving, independent thinking, and pride in their work product. We also provide summer associates with a variety of training opportunities in several practice areas. Each summer associate is paired with a mentor to provide guidance throughout the summer and beyond.

Our program provides several opportunities throughout the summer to have fun and get to know our lawyers on an informal basis. Some of our past events have included cooking classes with one of LA's premier chefs, lunches with the Laker's General Counsel and local judges, cultural events, baseball games, trivia night, and wine tastings.
