Our official policy is not to have a billable hours policy. We expect that you will do the highest quality work on time and do a great job communicating to both your colleagues and clients.

Are There Opportunities for Alternative Work Arrangements?

Yes. Several of our attorneys, paralegals and secretaries work or have worked reduced hours to accommodate family matters.
