Zuckerman Spaeder LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Be more willing to promote people from within and to give them the chance to expand their roles. You seem to already have cultivated an environment where people want to work and enjoy day to day operations, so they'll be loyal if they just get a chance to demonstrate themselves.

Pros: Partners and most other individuals were great to work with. Many people were willing to answer questions and provide informal mentoring. Good pick for recent college graduates.

Cons: Job security could feel uncertain, at times, though this applied more to staff. It felt like I'd be perpetually stuck in my previous role and at a fairly mediocre salary. People seemed to recognize other's potential, but stopped short of actually giving them more responsibility.

Advice to law firm management: Management should focus more on developing the junior attorneys into stellar performers. Afterwards, the money will come in organically.

Pros: The partners were very nice and lawyers are professional. When I was a new junior attorney, the senior partners helped me with my assignments.

Cons: When I was a new employee, the salary was not very good. Also, the management team focused a little too much on the bottom line and not enough on employee development.

The firm was founded, as Hyman & Phelps, on St. Patrick's Day in 1980. There were three founders: Paul Hyman, Jim Phelps, and Bob Dormer. They left a New York-based firm to create their own practice. The goal of the new firm was to provide service to clients regulated primarily by the Food and Drug Administration, the agency with which the three founders had extensive experience. When Steve McNamara joined the practice in 1984, the firm became known as Hyman, Phelps & McNamara. Later that year, ...
