At Dickinson Wright PLLC, the workplace environment is unsatisfactory. While PTO is available, paralegals are not treated well and are paid low salaries. The family law attorneys are known for their mistreatment of staff.

Dickinson Wright LLP: Where Excellence Meets Client Service

Dickinson Wright LLP is a leading global law firm that offers attorneys an exciting career opportunity. With 400 lawyers across more than 40 practice areas, Dickinson Wright serves clients in a variety of industries with offices around the world. The firm’s commitment to excellence and client service is evidenced by its long-term client relationships and its involvement in a number of historically-significant events.

Since its founding in Detroit in 1878, Dickinson Wright has maintained a focus on the client while staying on the leading edge of legislative and technological developments. The firm is proud to have been involved in drafting two of Michigan’s constitutions, the Michigan Financial Institutions Act of 1937, the Intangibles Tax Act, the Industrial Facilities Tax Act of 1974 and the Community Property Tax Act of 1948, to name a few.

At Dickinson Wright, attorneys are given the opportunity to work with leading industrial, financial, insurance, emerging technology and service enterprises around the world. The firm has been working with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company since the late 1800s and with Chrysler Corporation since it was organized in the 1920s. Dickinson Wright also holds the distinction of representing Ford Motor Company and National Bank of Detroit, which now is JPMorgan Chase Bank, for over eight decades.

Attorneys who join the firm are also part of a rich history that includes members of Dickinson Wright being appointed or elected to the judiciary. Currently, three of the seven justices of the Michigan Supreme Court began their legal careers at Dickinson Wright.

The Bay Area office of Dickinson Wright LLP provides attorneys with the opportunity to work with a respected global law firm that is dedicated to excellence and client service. With offices in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Saginaw and Troy, Michigan; Las Vegas, Nevada; Columbus, Ohio; Lexington, Kentucky; Nashville, Tennessee; Phoenix, Arizona; Washington, D.C.; and Toronto, Ontario, Dickinson Wright attorneys have the opportunity to work on six continents and expand the firm’s global presence.

Diversity Write a review

Dickinson Wright is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace and is a recognized leader among law firms for our diversity initiatives. For decades, Dickinson Wright has been a pioneer in all aspects of diversity - both within the firm and in the communities where we do business. From the associate level up to management, we are committed to recruiting and supporting diverse candidates. We know that a diverse team enables us to offer our clients a variety of mindsets when approaching complex legal issues.

Summer associate program

Dickinson Wright maintains a 10-week summer program that combines high-quality client work, professional activities outside the office and fun, often unique, social activities. Our summer associates participate fully in our sophisticated and diverse legal practice, and they gain realistic insight into life at our firm and the lives of the diverse lawyers who make up Dickinson Wright.

The program is designed primarily for second-year law students, although first-year students (and to a lesser extent), third-year students, sometimes also participate. The program is carefully structured and administered to provide a supportive environment geared toward success because we want every summer associate to earn and accept an offer to become a Dickinson Wright associate. We view the Summer Associate Program as key to our goal to identify and attract the most highly qualified law students, who will drive the firm's strategic growth.

The Summer Associate Program is run by a "Summer Team," led by the chair of our Recruitment Committee together with two assignment coordinators and two social coordinators. Each summer associate is assigned two formal mentors (one member and one associate).

Summer associates complete high-quality writing assignments that can span nearly every department in the law firm - from commercial, appellate and employment litigation, to corporate finance, real estate, bankruptcy and intellectual property. Summer associates also participate in "real world" lawyer experiences, such as attending deal closings, strategic meetings with clients, depositions, trials and arbitrations to provide an understanding of the work they will perform if they continue their career at Dickinson Wright.
