    Best boutique litigation experience

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsSmall firm feel, interesting work, effort to give interns more genuine associate experience.

    ConsAs an intern, few negatives, but work is classic law firm case reviews so a little isolating, just you and your computer for lots of the day

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great introduction to the legal world

    Paralegal I (Former Employee)

    ProsGet the opportunity to work with smart lawyers, some very interesting cases, great stepping stone to law school, lots of young paralegals

    ConsAmple opportunity to work and or be expected to work overtime - long hours, can be very fast paced for those that do not want that

    Rigid place

    Systems Administrative (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsVery well run from the point of view of those who own the company. Good benefits - a month of time off given for most staff (PTO and sick leave combined). Good salaries.

    ConsTerribly rigid, soul-less and corporate. The staff and lawyers eat in different dining rooms. Don't expect to make friends in this place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealx. You don't need to act like you're on camera all the time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you're on the fence about law school, this is a great place to work.

    Legal Secretary (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsBig name firm. Big name clients. Great benefits.

    ConsNo room for growth for professional staff. Pay is not competitive. Legal secretaries are treated like second class citizens when they work twice as hard as paralegals for less pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen doors for your loyal employees rather than close them. Promote from within.

    Great environment

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsVery friendly, outgoing people, wonderful environment. Great location (right by Metro Center). Prestigious name. Great programming by HR, and fun outside life for employees - kickball, bar nights, a rock group, and a cookout all took place while I was there over the summer. Also a hard working environment with lots of smart employees. Great food, on-site cafeteria.

    ConsEveryone works hard, and it is sometimes expected that employees stay well past 5:30. For non-partners, you might not get paid for the overtime you put in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
