Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I think there needs to be more focus on making sure the relationships and trust we build with clients remains the more important aspect of the goals at the firm.

Pros: I really think that the firm is great when it comes to lawyers just starting out. The pay is great and I was happy with the benefits when I worked there. The associates who worked there also knew what they were doing.

Cons: The culture surrounding the firm was too oriented with financial gains. That is understandable for any business, but sometimes, it seems like our relationships with the clients was sacrificed for the monetary goals.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
