setup and operate bindery machinery. I learned to work fast and produce quality business forms. The management really loved hard workers. Everybody had to work together and closely watch for errors. The machines were rated per hour per job. I loved getting my production score and making over 100%. The worst part was when the company sold out and the new one started the swing shift - 4 weeks 1st / 4 weeks 2nd.
Challenging work, good team members and secure work environment
Litigation Paralegal/Legal Assistant (Current Employee) – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida – August 30, 2015
LBBS is a large multi-state firm that has top tier clients and challenging and interesting cases. I enjoy working for the team I am with and I would not be looking at other opportunities but for the commute to work each day, which can take up to two hours each way. Therefore, I am looking to see if there is something comparable in the Miami area.
Bookkeeper/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – June 5, 2015
I absolutely loved working there. Left for a promotion. Now that I don't need to make as much, I wish they had an opening and I would go back. It is a fast-paced environment with many deadlines but still a peaceful atmosphere. Treated like family.
Great firm to work for. They definitely get the job done! The trial work was very rewarding. It was sometimes difficult to balance general work vs. trial work, but we got the job done and in a timely manner.
Paralegal (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 24, 2014
A burgeoning branch of a firm out of Los Angeles that boasts over 850 attorneys nationwide. This firm has been a great place to work. With practices that range from medical malpractice to many types of Insurance litigation there is much to learn here and many to learn from.
Project/File Clerk (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 9, 2014
I began working for Lewis Roca in the Real Estate department to get experience in the legal field. I never know how my day is going to go as they always have me doing something different. I now work for Litigation as well and am gaining a lot of experience. Most of my co-workers have been with the company many years. Sometimes it's hard to manage working for many people in different departments but we work it out and always get the job done.

Office Clerk (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 1, 2013
Lewis Rice is a wonderful place to work. Work load & types of work vary from day to day as cases progress. The people in every level of management, attorney, and staff are what make the firm what it is. They are a great group of people. The firm creates a high demand of excellence of everyone who walks through their doors.
great atomosphere, wonderful people, excellent insurance, & experience
Receptionist / Billing Department (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – May 11, 2013
Learned how to submit billing for the lawyer's. We dealt with difficult clients who didn't always pay there balance, so that was the hardest part of my job. Management was pretty organized, they taught me how to use there system for submitting bills. My co-workers were all fun to work with and helpful if I ever needed there assistance.
great place learned fundamentals take w/ me for lifetime
Shop Mechanic (Former Employee) – Creola, AL – February 27, 2013
something is always going to go wrong. just how you handle it. A seal needs to be replaced, a blown tire, weld brackets on a trailer, fix pipe stakes, or weld coil racks. Everyday is different. Keep your attitude right no matter what the situation and the outcome is always good. Getting to go fishing when we fixed the boats or boat trailers was always cool.
Office Services Clerk (Former Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – November 6, 2012
I would start out the day in the mail room sorting through buckets of mail for the handling attorneys; one would think this to be tedious, dull, and boring work but the personalities in the mail room, with other clerks made it enjoyable and fun to be apart of. The rest of my day would consist of scanning, attaching, retrieving, organizing, and copying casework to corresponding cases. Management can be rough around the edges, but I understood that they just wanted me to do and be the best I could and their straight forward, cut-throat attitude was advice and criticism I learned from and desired.
lunches were provided for my work group on a daily basis. bagels provided by the firm on fridays.
