"Very cheap firm, smoke and mirrors"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: Stop being greedy

Pros: Free snacks after 7

Cons: I was an associate there. The firm cuts corners all the time, extremely disorganized across offices, opaque bonus structure (if you miss minimums by an hour they’ll refuse to give it to you), they terminate you without notice and ask you the leave the next day (happened to my friend), got rid of attorney offices in New York, lacking heavily in diversity (they use it as a marketing tactic and make it clear at their associates academy). Can’t recommend it.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Pat Flanagan, Mischi O Marca - cold people, unqualified

Favorite Things About this Firm: Nice logos

Current or former employee?: Former Employee

Last Year at Employer: 2019

Advice to law firm management: The law office should step away from only focusing on attorneys and should also look into helping other staff. Also, there is a need for affordable benefits.

Pros: The law firm is composed of employees and staff which are respectful and very knowledgeable. The law firm is unique in the sense that they embrace a different type of work culture.

Cons: The law firm does a poor job of offering benefits to staff and employees which are affordable. The management team seems to focus more on staff that includes attorneys.

Advice to law firm management: Try and hire more individuals to allow your employees to take more time off and not get as stressed with how much has to be done.

Pros: Working at this firm was a great step up for me and I learned a lot while being there. Everyone is friendly and hard workers.

Cons: At times, it can take a lot out of you, but that is something that you get used to. I enjoyed working there overall in the end.

Advice to law firm management: Management would really serve the firm well if they just took some more people in and spread the workload around a bit. The pay is okay and there are some people who enjoy the many long days, but there are more who don't and their work suffers for it.

Pros: The best part for me is the staff. Great people all around, both in their personalities and in their skills. From the top of the firm to the secretaries, everyone knows what they're doing.

Cons: There are a variety of small problems you'd expect from any firm of this size, but the work hours are worse than anywhere else I've been. Prepare to have a very small social life.
