Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf, LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: This firm needs to consider paying their employees more. Otherwise employees will look for better paying jobs elsewhere.

Pros: This firm offers a great work environment that is friendly and open. I like that we have weekly staff meetings to discuss any issues we have with the law firm and things we have done well. Employees get along very well with one another and we really feel like family here.

Cons: My only gripe with this law firm is the pay. It isn't terrible but it isn't wonderful either. Other firms pay more and it would be nice if this firm paid more for their positions.

Advice to law firm management: Management should increase the pay scale up to the industry's standard and give more interesting cases to all employees.

Pros: The location was very close to home and my co-workers were extremely nice. I also enjoyed speaking with some of the senior partners.

Cons: The pay was not very good and it was a very difficult to get good assignments. Additionally, I didn't like the fact that I had to work on weekends sometimes.

Windels Marx is a full service law firm headquartered in New York City, with offices in New Brunswick and Madison, New Jersey, and Stamford, Connecticut. The Firm has approximately 135 attorneys and provides services in 18 practice areas, the largest of which by volume of business are financial transactions, real estate, litigation, and bankruptcy. The Firm serves approximately 8,000 domestic and foreign clients, including banks and finance companies, insurance companies, manufacturers, non-profit entities, and government sponsored enterprises. The New York Law Journal listed Windels Marx in its annual survey "NYLJ 100: Largest Private Law Offices" (June 4, 2012). HISTORY OF THE FIRM With a legacy dating back to the mid-nineteenth century, Windels Marx has been an integral part of the formative events of the practice of law in New York, with founding members and officers of the New York State Bar Association and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and of American corporate history. Indeed, the Firm represented Thomas Edison in litigation which confirmed his claim to be the inventor of the incandescent electric light in the late 1800s and was responsible for incorporating IBM in the early 1900s. More recently, our attorneys have been selected to fill prestigious posts in government and in the legal profession. Several have been appointed to the judiciary, including the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and federal district courts. Over the decades, mergers with other law firms have led to expansion, both in size and scope of practice. The most recent merger, between Windels, Marx, Davies & Ives and Lane & Mittendorf, LLP, brought together two established firms, thereby creating a practice encompassing a greater depth of experience and an increased ability to handle more sophisticated transactions, as well as a growing client base. Our already strong New Jersey practice was enhanced by the addition of seven partners from the highly regarded, former Princeton law firm, Jamieson Moore Peskin & Spicer. These attorneys brought to Windels Marx sophisticated practices in complex insurance litigation, government relations and lobbying, environmental, corporate, securities, and banking transactions. More recent additions include bankruptcy trustees, practitioners in real estate tax certiorari, and mortgage and tax lien litigators.
