Advice to law firm management: Continue to facilitate growth of attorneys and staff, while also introducing benefits and incentives for employees to put in more effort and do their very best.

Pros: Cole Schotz is a great atmosphere to work in. Department heads are friendly and helpful, benefits are great, and it is an environment where everyone can make worthwhile contributions.

Cons: Change does not happen quickly at this firm. The atmosphere is not very competitive, which may be a turn off for those trying to be promoted/recognized for their efforts.

Hiring Criteria

Cole Schotz PC follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.

The firm has no specific criteria, however, we seek to hire students who have distinguished themselves academically and in their personal and professional pursuits.

Pro bono

We consider it an honor to play a part in the long-standing tradition of lawyers as community leaders.
A significant segment of the population and many worthy not-for-profit organizations cannot afford legal counsel. We recognize that only lawyers willing to donate their services can fill that gap. In addition to providing an important public service, we strongly believe that pro bono activities provide valuable opportunities for professional growth and personal fulfillment for our lawyers.
