Associate Reviews


  • “Firmwide, there is a culture of in-person interactions. Office-wide, we are often too busy to make that happen as often as we'd like, but attorneys seem to genuinely enjoy socializing together when we're able.”
  • “Our office is very collegial. For the most part, everyone is very respectful. There are exceptions, of course, but at least within our city, I think it's the healthiest culture you'll find in an L&E firm.”
  • “Lawyers interact often during work hours. There are a ton of firm events sponsored as brown bags, luncheons, and MCLE trainings. Because of COVID-19, the firm has suspended all in person meetings, but still holds happy hours virtually. … Day to day, everyone is working remotely, and I interact with at least 3-4 people daily via Zoom or Teams video calls. So, the day-to-day work can feel a little alienating at times, but that is due to the pandemic, not the firm’s doing.”
  • “Lawyers and staff work together very well. Perhaps there is some disconnect between attorneys and staff as far as socializing, but everyone is cordial, and people jump in to help or stop by to say hello regularly.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “The firm hires hardworking and smart attorneys with a strong background in labor and employment. Almost as important, however, is a candidate's personality. One thing that I love about our office is the group of attorneys—they are just good people through and through.  Everyone seems to understand that, so they have made it a priority to hire attorneys who will add to that atmosphere while doing great work.”
  • “Firm looks for lateral hires as opposed to new attorneys. Values prior experience and foundational tools.”
  • “The firm does a good job of diversifying the law schools from which it hires attorneys. Work ethic and work experience are probably the most important factors, but it likely depends on which office is doing the hiring.”
  • “Our firm is always looking for highly-motivated individuals. From my observations, level of experience prior to joining varies, but many who are hired have the same outlook on work, business development and work-life balance."
