    Fast paced environment, encouraging attorney growth.

    Former Employee - Associate Attorney

    I worked at Lyon Law full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    *You gain a lot of experience you wouldn't find anywhere else. As a first year associate, I was taking and defending depositions, attending hearings and mediations, writing motions, and had a lot of interaction with opposing counsel and clients.It really provides a great foundation, and exposure to the litigation process

    *Geoff is immensely talented at hiring smart, hardworking people who really create a very ocollaborative environment

    *If onen of your cases goes to trial, you might get the opportunity to help with trial prep, or even second chair

    *Competitive salary

    *Free diet Coke!

    Cons

    *Not necessarily a con, but be prepared for a heavy workload and a lot of responsibility. If you're an attorney, you are in charge of the day-to-day operations of your cases.

    *I ultimately decided not to pursue litigation, in part because of my dislike of the adversarial nature of the work. You are handling very personal and sensitive issues, and both clients and defendents can be defensive.If you have experience or familiarity with litigation then you'll be OK, but it emotionally a bit draining- but that's the nature of the work.
