News Brief Find out if this Firm is Hiring

Los Angeles 

Overall Review:  I spent a summer here and this seems like a great firm. They are very relaxed and invite everyone in the room to be a part of a discussion - not just audience members for the partners. The parters and senior associates seem to be very involved in mentoring more junior lawyers and helping them understand the process. Not too many screamers (every firm has a few) and there is very much a "team effort" within the practices that I worked with.

Overall Quality of this Firm
