Kiernan Trebach Reviews

- Reviewed on September 09, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Pay employees what they are worth. Happier employees make much better lawyers. Having high standards is fine if you if you make it worthwhile for associates.

Pros: You get to interact with clients quite a bit and gain court experience as well. It is a good learning environment.

Cons: The work and life balance is awful. The billable hour

At Bonner Kiernan Trebach & Crociata LLP, we commit our talents and energy to the continuation of a decade-long practice devoted to defense litigation, and to counseling the Firm’s clients on issues which affect their potential for litigation. Bonner Kiernan represents clients on a national basis, and maintains eleven offices in eight states plus the District of Columbia, with local presence in several others (See State Coverage Map). Our lawyers have appeared in the courts of over 35 states and territories. The firm’s expertise is frequently brought to bear in limiting exposure in major cases throughout the country. The wide ranging bar admissions of our lawyers, and our experience as regional and national counsel to Fortune 100 and 500 companies position Bonner Kiernan to provide directed and consistent representation on a regional or national basis. At Bonner Kiernan we pride ourselves on the kind of progressive and cost effective representation clients seek. We have a track record of being tenacious litigators who obtain successful results on behalf of our clients, but who are also mindful of the ever-increasing costs of litigation. We find ways to keep litigation costs under control.
