This firm has a substantial DC presence and a wide range of practice areas. The firm, generally speaking, is strictly anti-competitive within its own ranks, thereby consistently earning rankings as a top place to work. Culturally, those who step on toes to move up simply won't be accepted here. The DC office has the work and the profitability to hold its own among this firm's other offices. If you have the grades, affable personality, desire to earn a market salary and actually have a semblance of family life and personal time, this is the firm for you.
