    It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

      Don't risk your law license and career

      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

      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.

      Associate Attorney

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You learn a lot and are allowed to work autonomously. You are given the opportunity to counsel clients on a daily basis which is not the case in most law firms. You can work at your own pace, and billable hours, although required, do not effect your employment status if below the required amount. Awesome co-workers and all and all a great experience. There are many bad reviews, but I think they are due to personal issues those individuals had with the CEO and also a result of the company having been fairly new at the time. If you are smart and willing to work hard, you can become a seasoned attorney in less than two years. LF is especially great for legal assistants, because they are not required or asked to do administrative tasks, rather, they are in the trenches with their assigned attorney(s) talking to clients to help resolve their legal issues. After two years, most assistants are able to get positions at large law firms in Silicon Valley. This is not a traditional law firm, it has a start up environment, which means that you can be casual, joke around, have fun, and make it your own place. Best of all, you are allowed to make mistakes.

      Cons

      Pay is below industry standard, but it is substituted with education and really learning how to be an attorney and/or assistant. Lack of senior counsel for support. Lack of research resources, you will have to be savvy at google searches to update yourself at the law.

      Executive and Legal Assistant

      Apr 14, 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A great place to work if you don’t have a lot of prior work experience (I had zero legal work experience prior to joining this company), which is a rarity in the Silicon Valley: Raj, the CEO and Managing Partner, will give you a chance. A positive, determined, and proactive person with the word 'no' deleted from their vocabulary can gain a lot from this place. I was constantly exposed to real and substantive legal work, and given opportunities to help out/shadow the attorneys, uncommon traits for an Executive/Legal Assistant. LegalForce is a small company with a start up vibe so many people have to chip in and do various different tasks, a skill that will help you down the line. You will be surrounded by kind, helpful coworkers, and will gain some long lasting friendships and professional connections. When I started there were not many benefits, but by the time I left there was health insurance and 401k/retirement options; no company is perfect, and this one is continuously trying to improve itself.

      Cons

      I didn't get very much formal training which is good and bad. Good because you’ll have to think on your feet and quickly figure things out on your own (an invaluable skill) or who are the right people to ask the right questions. Bad if you don’t eventually pick things up in the end. Fast work pace but that’s to be expected in the legal profession.

      Patent Support Specialist

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You will get out at least as much as you put in. I joined LegalForce directly out of undergrad and was able to do meaningful work from day one. As long as you are willing to take advantage of the many opportunities this company has to offer and seek out work that challenges and interests you, there is no limit to what you will learn and accomplish. Raj and the other attorneys went out of their way to provide training and were more than happy to lend a hand when it came to professional and personal matters. If you are interested in intellectual property, are looking to do substantive work, and wish to learn from knowledgable patent attorneys, there are few better opportunities than LegalForce. The staff is perhaps the best thing about LegalForce. From management to the newer employees, everyone was extremely kind, fun, and helpful. Whether in the office, on the weekend, or on a company outing to a Giants game, LegalForce employees make this an enjoyable place to work.

      Cons

      LegalForce is a fast paced environment. This means that you are often required to learn and adapt quickly. You will be pushed at times, but your co-workers and superiors will be ready to provide the support and guidance that is needed.
