    I have been working at LegalForce RAPC Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Opportunity to interact with Clients from Day 1. - Chance to telecommute as an incentive if I'm meeting my hours - Opportunity to build a book of business from Legalforce's over 50,000 existing clients - Business minded "tech" culture is very vibrant, and focues on finding new solutions to problems, versus the "traditional" law firm.

    Cons

    - High Client Volume makes it challenging to spend a lot of time with each client. - Legal work is relatively unchallenging at the start - "Tech" culture may means rapid change. May not be a perfect fit for some attorneys.

    Pros

    Impossible to find even a word for this section.

    Cons

    This company is such a joke. People and their career get seriously hurt every single time this so-called CEO person goes through random temper tantrum, and the managing attorney is just there to perpetuate it. Please read and believe all the other negative reviews here, and do stay away from this place. You will waste your precious time and energy, and you might even be putting your career and license at risk.

    Pros

    Whether you're experienced or not they will give you a lot of clients and responsibility immediately. Not because you're special and they trust you but because you're cheap and nobody else will.

    Cons

    You will be risking your ability to practice law as soon as you start working here. The firm itself is being investigated by the USPTO's ethics division for fraud and poor practice. As a result most of the current attorneys and some former attorneys have received OED violations. Some have settled and received permanent marks on their records and some are fighting the violations. None of them were at fault. They were following processes implemented by the firms management. The attorney manager is Ryan Bethell. He ran this place into the ground. His management put the firm and all of its employees at risk. Im stunned some of my former colleagues are still there. They're better than that place. The owner of the firm is too busy with side projects, suing competitors, and suing former employees to realize that he hired a dud attorney manager. The best I can say about Ryan Bethell is that he's a good talker because he has played the owner like a fiddle. You'll be overworked. There is no HR. Benefits are a joke. This place is a disaster.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck... although Raj may change your compensation structure every month to be whatever he thinks will result in paying you less.

    Cons

    Everything else. Based on my personal experience, other firms will not even give you credit for having worked here, so don't kid yourself that you'll be getting valuable experience. Plus Raj will threaten you with frivolous lawsuits for years after you no longer work at his joke of a law firm. (Yes, this firm is the laughing stock of the legal community.) As mentioned in the title, don't work here unless you're starving and practically homeless.

    Former Employee - Legal Assistant/Paralegal in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at LegalForce RAPC Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a small company and if you show the attorneys that you are willing to work they will give you a lot of responsibility and client interaction.

    Cons

    There is no set standard of operation. Rules shift often and there is a lot of turnover with employees. Most people aren't able to last more than 1-2 years. The pay is also fairly low if you need to support yourself.
