"Former employee"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: Stop making titles and jobs for people. There are stoo many chiefs for the little Indians. Start listening to the Indians some Had good ideas but because they stepped on the toes of department managers no one listened.

Pros: Maybe the pay and benefits

Cons: Management especially with the management committee! They only listen to certain attorneys and support staff! If you aren’t part of the good old boys club then you aren’t anybody! As a woman that doesn’t suck ass you are nobody! They just buy up small firms to make themselves look gigantic. Then little by little they dismember the employees they brought over with those firms.

Partners to Avoid and Why: All of them!

Favorite Things About this Firm: Some of the people I worked with but there weren’t many I liked and I can get along with anyone!!

Current or former employee?: Former Employee

Last Year at Employer: 2016

Advice to law firm management: Retire ASAP!!!!!

Pros: Honestly, nothing.

Cons: Management is inept, incompetent, & incapable of running a law firm. Dog eat dog mentality due to origination system. Salaries are way below market—especially if you’re a woman or minority attorney. Only a handful of EQUITY-HOLDING partners even though they have tons of “partners.” Very homogenous (white men). Founders are racist, sexist, and Trump donors. Stay away from this firm if you want to keep your sanity.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Management, founders (“3 stooges”).

Favorite Things About this Firm: Nada.

"Stay Away If You Are A Woman and Minority—Horrible Environment! "   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: Please don’t think the public is going to look kindly upon your old boys club and the rampant, egregious, and systemic discrimination against countless individuals—staff and attorneys alike. The truth will come out one day including the fact that you have retaliated against countless individuals for calling you out for sheer incompetence, invidious discrimination, and the fact that y’all suck at the whole lawyer thing.

Pros: Before joining the firm, I was excited by novel approach to marketing and business development aspects of the firm.

Cons: Lots of turnover among attorneys and staff, management is rude, condescending, and demeaning towards women, minorities, and the legal administrative staff members who work hard. Toxic culture that rewards the old boys club, which consists of the management team and all white male shareholders (20). The firm is not well-regarded in the Baltimore area if you talk to other attorneys—seems like everyone has at least one story about a negative interaction or experience they had with the firm, firm partners, or a colleague who experienced the rude and disrespectful behaviors of opposing counsel that were firm partners. Many nice, well-meaning attorneys and staff but they cannot fix this very broken system because leadership starts at the top and change doesn’t happen unless leadership is interested in fixing problems and accepting feedback. Diversity is not valued or even addressed by firm. Shady.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Tim Lynch John Raftery Howard Kurman Ted Offit (especially any women—do not agree to be alone with him!) Maurice Offit Jason Klein

Favorite Things About this Firm: Some of the individual attorneys and staff (especially paralegals and admins!) who I met while employed by the firm. Many people supported me even though management made every attempt to embarrass and humiliate me for seeking equal treatment.

"Bad firm run by incompetent owners and non-lawyer managers"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Nov 15, 2019



Pros: None

Cons: The owners and the management committee don't practice law; instead, they exist at the firm to (1) pay themselves, (2) buy smaller, aging firms, (3) harass the billing attorneys about bringing in new business and stealing their existing clients, (4) avoid paying out bonuses, and (5) fabricate new and inventive ways to cut agreed-upon compensation packages, and (6) harass, demean and marginalize female attorneys.

Partners to Avoid and Why: See comments above. Don't go to this place unless you want lawyers who don't practice law and non-lawyer managers telling you how to practice law and interfering with your business and clients. Don't be fooled by the glossy marketing and website fluff. This is a firm that was created by three lawyers who bought a bunch of other crappy two and three lawyer law firms until they created one gigantic crappy law firm!

Favorite Things About this Firm: The owners and the two leaders of the management committee are as clueless and inept as the Three Stooges.
