Our attorneys achieve success because we embrace hard work. Working hard at McDonald Hopkins means staying focused on insightful legal solutions that help our clients strategically plan for an increasingly competitive future.
The firm has always been very flexible and respectful about the other demand in my life as a working mom. The firm was receptive to my proposal for a reduced hours schedule that better fit my needs. Within the firm, the attorneys I work with respect my schedule and my time. The technological support that is available is also a great help to balance my work and home lives.
When I started working at McDonald Hopkins as a summer associate, I immediately enjoyed direct client contact and responsibilities that you just don't get at other firms. This hands-on approach has helped me develop my skills as a litigator and given me the tools necessary to cultivate strong client relationships.
McDonald Hopkins offers each associate the opportunity to expand their experience and knowledge base by providing mentorship from its members and senior associates, from office to office and across practice areas. I like the fact that the firm has invested in technology to allow seamless interaction between the offices during in-house seminars or multi-office meetings. I feel it promotes a unified firm identity and assures its attorneys not only grow together but can develop a sense of camaraderie despite the great distance separating the various offices.
McDonald Hopkins places its highest values in the people it employs and the products it provides. When people and products come first, the client wins. McDonald Hopkins' holistic approach to business grants us the ability to provide our clients with value-add solutions opposed to just bandaging problems that are bound to reoccur.
As a lateral hire, my goal was to find a firm that provided significant intellectual challenges and exceptional professional support, while also fostering career growth. McDonald Hopkins is unique in the market as it provides each quality and, as a result, presents the ideal workplace for any hardworking and entrepreneurial lawyer.
