Tell your people to think before they shoot.

Very strongly worded letters.

Possibly stupid enough to break nearly every employee protection law they have in Texas on behalf of their client. Texas has very little employee protection laws btw.

They threatened to sue me on behalf their client (especially if I ever contact a member of their client's business) and now do not respond to me even when I do things like contact members of client's business to transmit messages to their law firm.

Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Management needs to ensure that everyone is being treated respectfully at all times, including the support staff. This would help morale tremendously.

There is a very good training program in place here and the leadership team does a great job developing the associates. There is also a level of teamwork here that I don't think many other firms share.

Some of the more tenured associates are cliquish and prone to treating others badly. This is especially true when they are interacting with support staff.

Each summer associate is assigned a partner and associate advisor and is given an opportunity to work in several areas of practice within the firm. Work assignments consist of a variety of "real-life" projects similar to those handled by our new associates. This may involve attending trials, hearings, depositions, and negotiating sessions, drafting documents and conducting legal research. The firm encourages students to broaden their work experience by completing a second session at another firm.
