Advice to law firm management: Shane was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: The attorney that I worked with (Shane Smith) was one of the best attorneys that I have had to deal with over my many years of dealing an attorney. He was smart (cunning) kept me informed, listened to my suggestions, got it done in a much timely fashion and would recommend him or his firm to handle any of your patent cases no matter what the size. Its refreshing to find an accurate, impressive representative for my company. I would highly recommend him to represent me anytime!!!!

Cons: none

Partners to Avoid and Why: none

Favorite Things About this Firm: Shane made the firm.

Pro bono

The firm has not reported whether it counts pro bono hours towards the minimum billable hours requirement. Pro bono hours are counted the same as billable hours for the purposes of year-end bonuses.

Summer associate program

Although McCormick Barstow is organized into three practice groups, Summer Associates are not assigned to a particular practice group for the summer. Instead, assignments are solicited from each of the practice groups and are distributed equally among the Summer Associates. This process ensures that each Summer Associate is able to work with as many attorneys as possible and experience a variety of assignments from different practice areas wihle maintaining a manageable workload.

During the Summer Program, our Summer Associates are given a considerable amount of responsibility. Accordingly, we feel the need to provide our Summer Associate with the type of assingments normally provided to junior associates. Summer Associates draft motions, complaints, answers, and discovery; assist in trial preparation; draft jury instructions and briefs; in addition to conducting legal research. Emphasis is placed on the quality of the work as opposed to the quantity. We also encourage our attorneys to allow Summer Associates to attend hearings, trials, depositions and client meetings to see firsthand the results of their work.
