You Need to Pay the Cost
Pay your staff, those ones who stand in the trenches with you, and work so hard for you, listen to them when they do not know you can hear them, when they have your back and you are not watching, they are keepers! You cannot pay for that kind of loyalty.
I have been in this business for many, many years, although I am simply a paralegal, those who know, really know, know that we make the world go around for our attorneys! I have had the opportunity to work with, for, and against many attorneys throughout these years. In our position, we get to see who the attorneys and staff really are. I must say that, during a big trial against one of Mr. Vaka's clients, he was kind, patient, humble, and his assistant mirrored his image. Trials are hard, long, tedious, and in this particular case, not only were there two attorneys working on the defense of the case, but a second was brought on to assist the Plaintiff. Mr. Vaka's tone of voice never changed, no matter what hour it was, how many things needed to be changed, or who did what wrong/right.
I hope this helps someone, because we never really know who we are going to be working for, or hiring, until it is too late. I would pick Mr. Vaka, any day of the week.
Someone who has been there.
I would not write a con, because I cannot speak about the pay, benefits, etc. but I would say that they did not offer me enough money to move my position. I actually inquired about working there.
I cannot recall the other attorney's name who was retained (co-plaintiff), but I personally liked Mr. Vaka himself. I am unfamiliar with the newer associates who work under Mr. Vaka now, so I must reserve judgement.
Anna Cherry was the first counsel on this case I have been describing, and she worked under Mr. Vaka. She worked very very hard for her clients, literally arguing every single motion, subpoena, etc. She represented him well.
Increase the pay and benefits. Work on making the environment less stressful.
You will learn a lot from working at this firm, which is a great environment for those who need experience. The work can be enjoyable at times. The staff is friendly and hardworking.
The pay and benefits are not as good as they should be. The workload could be too much sometimes.
You have a right to know what an attorney's experience is. You should insist that the attorney you choose has meaningful experience to best represent you and advocate on your behalf. Our lawyers have earned, and continue to earn, their reputations in the trial and appellate courtrooms of our state and federal justice systems. As a firm, our reputation is the product of our collective efforts and decades of dedication to our clients and their causes; efforts which continue to strengthen our reputation of professionalism and success.
We demand it of ourselves every day. You should too. Our lawyers are informed, prepared and professional. These character traits equate to a very valuable commodity that is likely to affect the outcome of your case: credibility. Credibility is critical to every aspect of your representation whether it involves negotiations, communication with opposing counsel, the judge, jury or anyone else who might have an influence on the resolution of your legal matter.
