Brouse McDowell Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would take everyone aside and have a general manners and attitude meeting. I think the few instances were not intentional and everyone could use a reminder about manners. I think it would make the firm an even more welcoming place.

Pros: The work is challenging but the firm will not overload you with work. The paralegals are very helpful with anything billing or processing related. The other attorneys are for the most part great. The mentoring here is good and even a more senior associate can get advice if they need it.

Cons: A few of the attorneys senior and junior were a little rude and aloof at times. I wasn't particularly offended by it, but it isn't good for this kind of environment. Otherwise there isn't anything bad about the firm, in fact it is great.
