Doerner, Saunders, Daniel & Anderson, L.L.P. Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The firm can improve by offering larger salary and bonuses to its employees, who believe they are underpaid by market standards. The firm should also offer more teambuilding activities to its staff.

Pros: There are plenty of other attorneys who want to help you here. After all, they are all in the same boat of wanting the firm to succeed and profit. There is an attitude of relaxation at this firm, for the most part, but don't slack off.

Cons: There isn't much to say, other than the fact that some associates think their pay package could be improved to be more in line with the market's standards.

Founded in Indian Territory in 1896, our law firm predates statehood by more than a decade – and from the beginning, Doerner lawyers were leaders who were helping to shape our region. The role that our rich history plays in today’s contemporary society and business world is evident in the depth of experience and get-it-done attitude that every lawyer brings to the table. We have always had the vision and know-how to make things happen for our clients. Doerner lawyers build on the foundation of strong client relationships established by our predecessors. We have represented many clients for decades, helping them grow, survive economic and other hardships, and thrive during boom times regardless of where their business interests take them. Throughout our history, we have been servant leaders. For many years, Doerner lawyers have been tapped for high profile appointments in regional and national government agencies, many to later become judges, serve in a governmental capacity or take top representative positions in major businesses and industries. A service ethic permeates our firm today and is evidenced by our lawyers’ passionate commitment to civic and charitable boards and organizations. Doerner is a member of Meritas, a global alliance of independent, full-service law firms. The alliance provides clients the ability to connect to the best local counsel possible, whether in the United States or abroad. Selection to participate as a Meritas affiliate does not come easy, as the organization only invites its members to join after a rigorous evaluation of the firm's high standards of quality and excellence. We are proud to have met Meritas’ exceptional qualifications and serve as one of the two Meritas affiliates in Oklahoma.

Doerner has found strength in our diversity. Our lawyers completed undergraduate work at more than 25 colleges and universities in 21 states and the District of Columbia, and graduated from 18 different law schools.

We recruit 2L's. Our clerkships are typically for six weeks and we allow clerkships in either the first or second half of the summer.

Summer associate program

Our summer clerkship program is a working clerkship. We strive to include summer associates in varied legal experiences, including drafting research memoranda, pleadings, attending depositions and court, drafting transaction documents and attending closings. We believe that this process allows the associate to learn about the full range of our practice and allows the associate to demonstrate analytical, writing and communication skills.
