Advice to law firm management: Supervise your lawyers.

Pros: The best of their form is their elaborate office and tea served in an 18th century tea kettle.

Cons: The probate lawyer who handled my fathers estate was reported to the Ohio Bar for his butchered handling and excessive fees charged along with a business relationship with a near bankrupt securities firm where, as trustee, he placed our fathers hard earned money into Bernstein proprietary products. This was a nightmare. 8 years later and we are still trying to get this straighten out after relieving the attorney as trustee and executor.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Roger Lee Shumaker.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Their teabags,

Advice to law firm management: The firm should either retrain the boss of the law firm or replace with a much more respectful and fair boss. Management should do a better job of not making poor decisions.

Pros: A law firm that has created a working space environment in which opportunities for development. The management team does a great job of looking out for the employees and staff.

Cons: Sometimes the management team has poor judgement. The boss gives the sense that there is a favorable staff member or members.

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!
