every day is quite the same. work is distributed prior to arrival. I work files that need priority first, and then work on files with later deadlines last. My manager is very understanding, always willing to help and better assist me with work. co-workers are close treated like family. The hardest part is making sure deadline are all met, may involve staying late until work is completed. Most enjoyable is get working completed before deadline and ahead of the workload, feels very accomplishing.

The salary is horrendous. Even seasoned attorneys start only slightly higher than fast food restaurant salaries. Since only brand new attorneys would put up with that, the firm is made up of mostly new attorneys. There is no training. New attorneys who have been there their whole career, a year or 2, don't even know the basics of litigation or law practice. Corners are cut and left for the next attorney to handle. Managers barely have experience themselves. Hard work is not rewarded. In fact, you will be reprimanded if you try to take the time to actually resolve a problem rather than do the least amount of work possible in order to move onto the next file. Everyone goes to work every day wondering if it's their turn to be fired. Attorneys and staff have been fired while out on federally protected leave. Attorneys will get calls or texts at 7pm or later telling them to return to the office and complete additional work that they are just being assigned - just because. Every text or message ends with, "Your job depends on it". The staff runs the place. If they go to your tiny cubicle and you happen to be away from it for a few minutes (bathroom, lunch, etc.), they will tell your supervisor that you are not there and you will be questioned repeatedly and reprimanded. You will not be told who complained. Your every move is micromanaged. Very few people know how to get necessary documents from the banks and no one knows who knows it. I'm very surprised they are still in business.
Forget glass ceiling -- this ceiling is made of solid concrete.

A terrible firm that punishes good lawyers with more work and no rewards. However, if you're lazy and don't like to work, or even come into the office once a week, a management or shareholder position at ALAW is perfect for you! Seriously, stay away from this place. It is a career killer and the only people who get promoted are the friends and relatives of the people already in charge. As attorney with 5 years of experience, I didn't even have an office - just a tiny cubicle - and I was not alone.

Everyone in management has a friend that they have hired and will stand by. You can do the best you can at your job if someone doesn't like you, its as if you were infected by the plague. No advancements ever, if you like being a high schooler that needs friends to survive this is the place for you.
Very busy day at work with supieriors not wanting to listen since you do the job. They make changes and do not tell anyone until your repremanded If you have co workers that are not team players, your in a bad team Coming to work and knowing that you can work and work and it is never enough. No direct management attorney in the dept to speak with as you have to go through chanels to get answers Leaving is the most enjoyable
75 percent of your day is fixing work you have already completed, but were not informed in a timely manner of any billing changes or procedures. fixing other peoples work who where not trained correctly. Managers and supervisors with more drama on the job and off the job then the people who work for them. Unprofessional and people working in postions that they are not qualfied for. Keeping unproductive people on staff who did not and could not understand the job for two years never making there numbers for productivty, making it difficult for everyone else. Supervisors talking about the other employees in front of the staff and sending unprofessional emails.
No job security, poor work ethics, and business planning
MB Foreclosure Supervisor (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – January 22, 2015
Albertelli Law acquired the trustee part of the business from JPMorgan Chase. The difference was felt immediately, by showing poor management skills, specially from the HR Department. The workforce was the same a s it was for JPMorgan Chase, so that was the only thing that kept us going a side from getting a paycheck. The hardest part of the job was getting a 10% pay cut due to their poor management skills, and then the layoff of over 80 employees.

It is a a great place to work for those like me that are workaholics. Co-workers and management are friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job was the computers trying to keep up with the workload. I enjoyed the atmosphire of the office and how friendly and helpful everyone was.
I'm unable to describe the company since they were based in Tampa, Florida & we were in Chatsworth, CA

It's a good company to work except that due to the Mortgage Business was down in 2014, the West Coast Operation was CLOSED. A lot of my Co-workers including me were unhappy to what happened to us with this company.
Attorney (Former Employee) – Florida – August 3, 2015
This firm is like the many that expanded during the foreclosure crisis and decided the best course of action was to pretend that the foreclosure mess would never end. Instead of using the stable base of foreclosure work to perhaps expand and secure the future of the firm, the firm leadership decided to just ride the foreclosure train to oblivion.
Legal Asst- Bankruptcy/ Legal Asst- Service Dept (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 29, 2015
A typical day at this company is very goal orientated and productivity driven. The work day is very involved and ever changing due to the industry and client requirements. I began to work in the company as a onsite specialist contracted from a third party vendor. I was later hired for my background and efficiency in my work capabilities. The training I received was critical to my job performance and ability to excel in my position. I spent a year in this position and later transferred to Bankruptcy and handles proof of claim, objection to plans, daily reports, review of court dockets, update client systems and contact local counsel for hearing attendance.
great work environment and very industry focused
hired by third party source, company severed ties, lay off
Paralegal (Former Employee) – Tampa – November 7, 2013
Although short-lived, I absolutely loved working for this company. My colleagues were amazingly helpful during training. Albertelli Law seemed to have a strong sense of ethics and professionalism. I had an awesome supervisor and managing partner. The work load was fast paced and everyone stayed extremely busy. Even so, it was one of the best places I had ever worked. I was very saddened by the layoff as I traveled from out of state to accept this position.
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, Florida – September 29, 2014
Albertelli Law is a great place to work. One is able to work independently however can seek assistance when needed. I was able to increase my knowledge at Albertelli by working with opposing counsel in settling most of my contested trials. I've also learned how to prepare a subpoena and coordinate depositions. The most challenging part of my job is not being able to complete a task due to interruption by an attorney needing assistance in court. However, I do it weekly and with very few mishaps.
Being able to work independently amongst great co-workers
A lot of daily projects that takes away from my regulay schedule job responsibilities
