Advice to law firm management: Get rid of the managing partner so that is the entire firm dies not downhill. The other partners need to speak up and put him in his place.

Pros: I wish I read the review in here before I wasted my time and met with the rudest, most ignorant man in the world - that would be the firm’s managing partner. They all went to Harvard - so did my daughter, except she learned class at home.

Cons: Being treated in a rude manner. Also no benifits. During my interview I asked if we got any sick or personal days. His answer was that my question was self-centered and rude. He said his ex-employee was kind and never asked about that.

Partners to Avoid and Why: I’d avoid all of them because the managing partner is a reflection of the others. Anyone that would partner with the current managing partner has to be sketchy.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Nothing - not a thing- nothing - nothing good - bad bad bad bad place — if you like being talked to like a piece of trash - then this is the place for you.

Current or former employee?: Former Employee

"Truly awful place for an attorney to work"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: The firm should have a management committee, with four attorneys, assigning areas of responsibility to each one. That person could take initiative to modernize the firm in ways that would improve working conditions, efficiency, knowledge management resources to leverage for future work or business development. And 360-degree reviews. In the absence of HR, this would add oversight to keep in check the managing partner. And would actually make the firm better as a business. It would be better at the business of law, and thereby attract clients and talent to make the firm a better place for attorneys interesting in practicing law.

Pros: The firm is managed by a person who treats everybody with whom he interacts like trash. He was screaming at the cleaning ladies for closing a door after business hours. For an hour. He discriminated against attorneys raising a new family. And he provides zero benefits on any level.

Cons: No transparency. The managing partner badmouthed other attorneys at the firm, his paralegal, and his clients. He behaves in s manner that should not be tolerated by any person who is unable to maintain perspective and ignore him while looking to transition elsewhere, immediately.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Stuart Kagen should be avoided for the reasons above. But it is his firm and he needs to be kept in the loop to maintain his ego and to get more assignments.

Favorite Things About this Firm: The firm’s technology consultant is top notch. He takes care of the attorneys, is friendly and helpful, and on the cutting edge of cyber security and document management resources. He has advised improvements that any other firm would undertake as a matter of course. But these improvements get ignored.
