Please do not fall for the recent "good reviews"

Stop trying to fool potential future employees with your clearly false positive reviews and work on actually making a change to the firm, your terrible attitudes and lack of respect for other human beings.

They clearly have started to try to clean up their insanely low employee review rating of 1 star. They deserve 0 stars. Please do not be misled by these false reviews from March 2021. This firm is abusive and toxic. You will want to leave as soon as you are hired. Please please take the negative reviews seriously! This firm needs to be shut down for the way they treat employees.

Donna Burden will berate you via email, talk badly about you to other employees and insult you when mistakes are made. Phyllis Hafner will nitpick every single mistake and refuse to provide clear, to the point instructions and then insult you and make you feel dumb when you dont understand her nonexistence directions. Sarah Hansen is kind but is often used by Donna to do her dirty work and then Donna will bad talk Sarah's clothing and work to employees of the firm. Are these people you would want to work for?

Nice Try

Stop trying to bump your stats.

I am posting this here because the two reviews dated March 2021 are an obvious sham attempt by the firm to rehabilitate its LawCrossing reputation. Unless the firm and the way in which it is run have undergone some sort of psychic cleansing, there is no way those two reviews are real.

The substitution of "we'll just post some fake reviews" for "these reviews are bad perhaps we should consider why it is our turnover is so embarrassingly high."

Avoid partners who are so allergic to introspection that they turn instead to hiring online reputation repair companies to post obvious sham reviews.

How hilariously obvious these attempts are.

Terrific firm/people!

A wonderful firm to be a part of. Attorneys are helpful. understanding and have an open door policy. The admin staff is not only excellent at what they do, but will go out of there way to help each other. The partners of the firm want you to succeed and will help you give you every opportunity to do so, even though the firm is small in size, I had the opportunity to advance and learn skills. The firm is managed with excellence. Great firm all around. The partners take great pride in all the employees.

None to Share. If you have the opportunity to be a part of BHH I would highly encourage you to do so. I would absolutely 100% be a part of BHH again!

None.

Office culture, Attorneys and all staff members

Small firm where you get to work with a lot of different people. Collaborative. Personal--everyone knows you and you know everyone else. Great opportunities to learn and gain experience.

Busy litigation department not for everyone. If you want to excel in this field, however, great opportunity for advancement.

Personal touch, small firm feel.

ABUSIVE DO NOT APPLY

Close. You will never keep employees with the attitudes and atmosphere you provide.

Partners are abusive, no training is provided and you will be blamed and insulted for it, Burden constantly threatens jobs and belittles her employees. Burden will fire employees and then bash them to the entire firm and tell the reasons they were fired. Toxic work environment. No training provided so there is no working experience to gain and the atmosphere and coworkers will make you rethink your whole career choice. DO NOT APPLY!!!!!

Donna Burden and Phyliss Hafner DEFINITELY but no one will be very kind or helpful

Agree awful management

Quit sending emails and TALK to your employees.

The support staff

Lead attorney is the most abusive boss I ever worked for. She plays favorites even the favorite is running the firm into the ground. Other partners are partners in name only. No additional compensation for being a partner.

Donna Burden. She's verbally abusive

Treat your employees with respect.

Employer pays good portion of health insurance

ABUSIVE!!! horribly rude emails sent constantly, no training is provided and you will be berated when you make mistakes, they dont advise you have to pay for parking in the interview, NO MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT so no one to report their mistreatment to! Definitely NOT a team atmosphere. Working for this firm WILL change you and how you view the work you do - save yourself, do not apply!!!!!

Phyliss Hafner - incredibly rude and belittling, does not read emails properly so you will never receive a straight answer and she WILL make you feel like you have no idea how to do your job Donna Burden - will berate and insult you in emails, does not care about office concerns and will blame new employees for as much as she can

Not working there.
