Lots of window dressing. It wants to be seen as a top firm, but it is not. Why? It is client-poor and they take any bottom feeder as a client and a lot of has-beens. The market rate comp is just for the first year. On the website, every practice group is padded with lawyers that don't really work in the group to make the firm look bigger. A partner had such a potty mouth, I've heard truck drivers that sound better educated and more sophisticated. Associates are dog-eat-dog. Bullies and their eunuchs. Trailer trash support staff.

That I left!
