"Stay away!!! There are better law firms than this"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jun 18, 2020

Advice to law firm management: Fire the female management, get new management and supervisor and a new OA.

Pros: There isn't a thing I can think if that is great of this firm.

Cons: People are able to get away with anything and everything at this firm. The gossip, backstabbing by the legal secretaries and the female management and OA. No one has your back here.... Also, if you ask other law firms about GRSM, they will tell you that the Irvine Office is a complete joke and that you can do better. Attorney's act like they deserve the red carpet. No one, and I mean no one respect anyone in this office. Time fraud is huge at this firm and so is blaming someone else for their mistakes and not taking accountability. Not even the OA takes accountability. The pay isn't great and not worth the lack of respect you get by working here.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Avoid the managing partners. The female managing partner will only blame you for her wrong doing, so she doesn't get caught. And if the supervisor who is also a female doesn't like you, you won't last at that firm. It's not worth it!!

Advice to law firm management: Replace management. Hire more male staff and stop being sexist. 2 guys working there isn't enough, with everyone else being a female. Replace your OA. And check on people's time arrival. Some worker's have gotten away with time fraud.

Pros: Free bagels on Friday's and food on holidays.

Cons: Everything else. I was at the Irvine Office, and the backstabbing that goes on, the unethical behaviors between attorney's and staff, under paid and over worked. The partner management needs to be replaced. The female managing partner needs her ego fed every time she is at the office. This woman shouldn't be an attorney. If you want to keep your job, you have to kiss her behind and other's too. The office supervisor will betray you and talk behind your back. I have never met a group of females that are miserable, that they make everyone else there miserable. These people are not happy people. The receptionist needs to put some makeup on and look alive!!! She also needs to tone down her tone of voice and have some respect for other workers, whether new or not. I have never seen a firm that gets away with disrespect and a lack of integrity and accountability. In order to move up here, the OA and her AA, need to like you. Regardless if you do good work, if they don't like you, you will not advance.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Stay away from the female managing partner, unless you're great a kissing up to people to move upward. One of the male partners there has the tendency to take his anger out of the staff, hence why no one likes him.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Free food. They have snacks. That's it.

"It's just not a real biglaw firm. "   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: I appreciate that insurance work's paltry rates make it impossible to pay your associates. However, if the equity partners contributed even a small percent of their outrageously high earnings towards the associates you might actually have a chance at stopping the ridiculously high turnover.

Pros: Because this is largely insurance based work, your partner will dump almost all responsibility onto you (contacting client, initial investigation, writing litigation reports, writing briefs and motions). There is a small to decent chance you will argue a motion or take a deposition, but the partners usually do those. Likewise, because your work is insurance based, you will meet a lot of individuals. If you consider these things valuable experience, there is that.

Cons: Lord almighty the pay - it's atrocious. If you have any friends in "BigLaw" you will be the most underpaid of your friend group, and should expect to make at least half their salaries. Likewise, the firm imposes a 1900 billable hour requirement, and a dollar-per-hour-over-1900 bonus structure that heavily incentives you to bill well in excess of that amount. Likewise because the work is insurance based, there is plenty to go around and you will be likely working well into the night on many occasions. By the same token, most insurance cases are inconsequential, and invariably settle without much legal strategy, tactics, or even thought. It's a numbers game for insurance companies. Lastly, even though you may meet a lot of new individuals, you'll always be retained counsel, and any relationship you share ends with the case.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Most have fine personalities, but pass on the G&R Kool-aid when they offer it. G&R should not be your home for more than 2 years. Your personal and professional growth will cease, and your pay will continue to be laughable. Get experience, market yourself, and move to a well established firm that will pay you to the level you work.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Free snacks. The other associates are nice.

"No one is happy here"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: Not sure what can be done. Stop pretending to be a big firm, ruining careers by hiring people to work there? New management might help but this is such a bad firm and has such a horrible reputation that it will probably take decades to fix.

Pros: It is a law firm and a place to work? This is not a good firm and not a pleasant place to work--the only redeeming quality is that it does pay something.

Cons: Every attorney hates working here. The work is horrible. This is an insurance defense firm pretending to be a big firm. Horrible reputation and management--STAY AWAY!

"Worst Large Law Firm in the Country"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jan 17, 2018

Advice to law firm management: Not sure how to improve other than to dissolve the firm. No one likes working there, the pay is not that good, the firm is not respected in the market, most partners do not have a lot of work--and so forth.

Pros: This is the worst large law firm in the United States. They are a former insurance defense firm trying to act like a big firm. They are cheap with their associates, partners and everyone they come into contact with. There is little reason to work there. It is not a respected name in the legal profession.

Cons: There is no reason to work there. It is not a good law firm. Attorneys coming out of here are not respected in the marketplace at all.

"A Stepping Stone Firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jul 21, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The other attorneys really want to see everyone succeed. Be a helpful contributor and take on the mindset that what benefits one will benefit all.

Pros: A helpful firm to gain experience and you are able to move up in the firm pretty quickly. They have the best schedules and are flexible with your time schedule.

Cons: There is little to no communication so it can make your job harder than necessary at times. The salary and benefits are very low compared to other firms of this size.
