    A good place to learn how to handle volume; lack of management.

    Pros

    BAL is a great place to learn how to handle volume processing of cases. They have a good data base system to assist you in managing your case load.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, volume processing can lead to many mistakes and thus, quality of work suffers. The biggest weaness of BAL is lack of leadership and management by the partners in all of its offices. While there are some good attorneys and paralegals - many are not competent but will not be disciplined, trained or let go - giving the appearance, that BAL is just focused on keeping up the body count. Turnover is very high, leading to staffing issues, client discontent and issues with service. Management does not value their strong employees, which is why many leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The partners need to work on addressing the issues at BAL rather than ignoring them. They also need to learn to work better together - in SF and across its offices.
