Reviewed on October 31, 2020

While the going is good they are goody two shoes.

The management went into the crisis wishing and hoping it was a two month deal. They did not cut expenses and ultimately decided to take it all out on select attorneys. Financially they are probably hurting worse than others.

Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Changing staff amongst the Senior attorneys would allow for more growth in knowledge and make up for the lack of advancement available.

This firm stands out for the fact that the Senior attorney like to give the new hires solid cases to work on. This shows a level of trust that is rare today.

Advancing in this firm is rare. The Senior associates like to make never-ending promises to keep their staff working on their cases.
