Woods Oviatt Gilman LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on September 09, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Upper management needs to eliminate the use of gossip in the work place and emphasize the impact it has on other employees. People come into work to get things done and pointless drama only causes problems.

Pros: This firm has always showed me a great deal of kindness and respect. I am always treated as a valuable member of this establishment and not taken advantage of by upper management. Management is incredibly dedicated to their employees and always tries to ensure their happiness is met.

Cons: The only issues with this firm were the other employees and a lack of management. Employees treated the environment much like a high school and gossip was constantly running about. I felt management could have done a better job of dealing with complaints.

Summer associate program


Our program is designed to take maximum advantage of the opportunity which we have in the legal industry to employ summer associates. Summer clerkship allows both the firm and candidates for permanent positions a trial or test run prior to committing to a permanent employment relationship. The philosophy underlying our Program has always been to take maximum advantage of this opportunity by making the summer associate experience mirror what it is like to be employed by the Firm after graduation, as an associate. To accomplish this end, we provide our summer associates with real work assignments involving real cases and issues. We attempt to avoid purely academic pursuits such as writing articles or researching issues that have no relationship to client work. We strive to provide a working environment that allows the summer associate to experience what it is like to practice law as an associate attorney. Only by treating our summer associates similarly to associates, including the challenges and responsibilities that all attorneys face, can they experience what it would be like to work here in the future. The feedback which we have consistently received is that these efforts are successful.

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
