  • “Lawyers interact with each other all the time. Open door policy is realized at the firm. Lawyers and staff socialize together after hours often.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “The recruiting partner is intimately involved in the hiring process and takes it very seriously.  We look for attorneys who not only can provide quality legal services but also will fit well in the culture of the firm.  We typically hire out of USC and UCLA through on campus interviews, but many new hires have come from other schools as well.”
  • “The firm is looking for outgoing, smart, business-minded associates. Feeder schools are typically USC and UCLA—they want T14 coming into the firm as a first year. After that, they seem more flexible.”
  • “The firm participates in OCI. Among other things, the firm values the law school attended, experience, intelligence, diversity, and personality. Given that associates are given a lot of responsibility early on, the firm values associates who are proactive and excited about learning opportunities.”
