Attorneys are given as much responsibility as they are prepared to handle, and the firm encourages every attorney to take on opportunities to grow professionally and build a name for themselves in their fields.
The attorneys have a wealth of experience, and the firm fosters a culture where junior attorneys can (and do) approach senior attorneys at any time and receive their full attention and insight.

Advice to law firm management: Keep trusting new employees with responsibility and work, but the workload needs to be lightened, asits way too much for someone so fresh out of law school.
Pros: Working here is a great opportunity to gain experience not offered in law school, and I learned quite a bit.Helping those who have been mistreated is a goal of the firm and makes me feel good inside.
Cons: There is an overload of work at this firm.It is very difficult to invest the necessary time for the path of promotion. New employees are handed a large amount of responsibility on day 1.
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.
