Connell Foley Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Think about expanding offices. The office won't be as busy for those of us working, and people won't see those they don't care for as often. More importantly, is growth!

Pros: The people there are great. It was easy to ask questions or for help on a project. Everyone was friendly and willing to act together as a team.

Cons: The firm doesn't have the smallest staff, so on some days there is a bit of hustle and bustle in the office. It makes it harder for us to concentrate on our work. Some people there don't get along with others.
