    Up to this point in my life, this was the best 8 years in professional career when I was a paralegal.

    Paralegal, 8th-Year (Former Employee) Troy, MI

    ProsCoworkers, exellent benefits, professional work environment, and opportunities for growth and education in other areas of the law if you had the desire to explore and learn. Also, if you worked hard and showed dedication, you were rewarded with excellent bonuses. Of all of the law firms I have worked at, this firm by far has the best bonuses I have ever received. The bonuses were not based on length of employment but based on your actual work product, which I believe is the fairest bonus system a company could adopt.

    ConsI honestly can't think of one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work and I hope that the firm is ran the same way it was when I left it to move to Florida in 2008.

    Poor structure

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLong-standing organization, many excellent and well-respected attorneys

    ConsOld-school law firm culture that valued time spent over efficiency and expertise. Poor structure.

    Excellent Law Firm with remarkable people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsPlenty of Attorney's / Staff here are easy to work with. In this firm you find everyone is hard working and has the "team" atmosphere.

    ConsWhen you work in the Law Firm environment you always work with a few difficult attorney's who wait till the last minute, demand the impossible and have no real concern for their co-workers. You find these people in every firm, but they were few & far between in my experiences here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeware office gossip that can spread like a cancer within any firm. People can often be replaced but too often it's the wrong person.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Attorney (Current Employee)

    ConsI can't say anything negative about this firm
