Advice to law firm management: Hire competent people and pay them what other firms are paying.
Pros: The snacks and coffee? The pay and benefits are just average or some might even say below average for the type of work we are doing.
Cons: Some of the other Attorneys I work with are worthless. Jessica Dell is one of those Attorneys. She does not know how to practice law and I have no idea what she does at the firm. I do not even think she shows up for work every day. She does not go to court, she does not do depositions, she does not draft complaints, she does not draft motions or briefs and she does not talk to opposing counsel or co-counsel. You really cannot give her an assignment to work on because she does not know how to do anything. Whatever she does hand in is pretty worthless work product. She makes everyone else's job more difficult because she does not know how to do anything.
Partners to Avoid and Why: I guess that really depends on how well you get along with other people.
