Harkins Cunningham LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Start allowing more women and minorities into associate roles. Then, offer them partnership positions if they can prove they have what it takes to succeed.

Pros: You will improve as a lawyer once you walk through those doors. Your skills will be refined from day one. There are plenty of senior lawyers to work with here, so it is a bit of an older firm.

Cons: The firm seems to employ few women and fewer minorities. It seems like your chance at partnership is not especially high if you aren't a white male at this firm.
