Sherman & Howard L.L.C. Reviews

- Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would like the firm to be more open to the possibilities of talking and brainstorming with other firms. It will not only help us with our clients, but it would also help to create more opportunities in regards to business.

Pros: I really enjoy working for this firm. My associates are all well versed in fields such as family law, etc. I have no problems getting the help I need from the workplace. I also appreciated that the lawyers care about the clients.

Cons: I feel that there should be more of a focus on better communication with other firms. At times it feels the firm doesn't bother networking too much with other firms, which I think could be beneficial.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
