News Brief Find out if this Firm is Hiring

New York 

Overall Review:  This firm is awful, in the Summer of 2005 it split in half - and now it is only about 30 attorneys at most. They practice exclusively insurance defense, and the remaining partners hog most of the billing and the 5 partners who ran off had big fights over the Partnership agreement. If you get an offer from this place, just avoid it like the plague.

Overall Quality of this Firm

For every category, 1 is the worst possible and 10 is the best possible answer.
