This is truly a wonderful firm to work for with all its support, benefits and generous salary. My advice would be to keep doing things like they are being done right now.
This firm has one of the highest starting salaries for young lawyers to be found in Louisiana, with most getting a six-figure offer. The benefit package is just as outstanding to go along with it. This is one of the top firms for business law and there is no shortage of cases or work. The culture is very open and supportive here.
Things can get pretty hectic with the heavy case load that the firm carries most of the time. So you might have a bit of an imbalance between work and home life, but it's never to the point of being oppressive or unfair.

As a signatory to the Louisiana State Bar Association's Statement of Diversity Principles, Stone Pigman is committed to fostering diversity in the legal profession. We recognize that diversity is an inclusive concept that encompasses many aspects, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, and disability, among others.Diverse attorneys and non-attorney staff occupy leadership positions within the firm, including membership on the firm's Management Committee and supervisory positions within the firm's administration. We take great pride in the fact that Stone Pigman was one of the first firms in the New Orleans area to have women and minority attorneys serving on its Management Committee. The firm is especially proud of the fact that the first African-American president of the Louisiana State Bar Association was Stone Pigman member Wayne J. Lee. In addition, multiple management and department director positions are held by women.
Stone Pigman seeks to hire new associates primarily from our summer program, which we view as an important period for mutual evaluation. The program consists of both first and second-year law students, although the first-year program is very small. Students may choose to split their summer employment between Stone Pigman and other firms, but they are expected to spend at least five to six weeks with us.We structure our summer program to parallel as closely as possible the work experience of a new associate. We attempt to provide each summer associate with a variety of work experiences in the firm's practice areas. If a summer associate has an interest in a particular area of law, we make every effort to accommodate that interest. Each summer associate is assigned two mentors, providing ready resources for responding to questions about the firm or providing assistance as necessary.Our summer associates are encouraged to attend trials, hearings, depositions, appellate arguments, closings, negotiations and client meetings, and we manage the workload to maximize these opportunities.We also enjoy getting to know our summer associates in a more relaxed setting, so we host a variety of summer social activities. These events may include informal gatherings like sporting events, dinners at leading restaurants or members' homes, and private functions that take advantage of the unique flavor of New Orleans.
