Patterson & Sheridan Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Stop pushing people so hard. The stress of having to work so much just burns people out in a year or two. If the billable hours requirement was more reasonable and there was actual a chance for advancements then you wouldn't have to hire new people every couple of years. Surely a more stable firm is a more successful firm.

Pros: The training program is excellent and the work for many top names is very interesting. You will gain good experience.

Cons: That experience will most likely be prosecutorial and for a particular client with no room for movement. The billable hours requirement is high. The turnover rate is also high.

When you visit Patterson + Sheridan, you’ll notice a few things. Our doors are open. Dress is business casual. Young associates are in face-to-face meetings with clients. Partners, associates, and staff members are all friendly, respectful, and collaborative. We know we’re biased, but we think our firm is a pretty great place to work. We’re passionate about our work and thrive on making people—including our clients and each other—successful. We think mutual respect, honesty, humility, and integrity are pretty important. We want to hire the very best, but we won’t tolerate egos or bad behavior. When hiring, we ask one question: will this person make our firm a better place? Our style is highly collaborative, with no silos or empire building. In fact, your success is judged largely by how much you help others succeed. Although individual achievements are recognized and highly praised, it takes a true team effort to deliver the kind of work our clients have come to expect from us.
