Difficult attorney
Assistant (Former Employee) –  FloridaFebruary 1, 2013
Corporate practice group has a particularly difficult attorney to work for- touts communication yet is unable to effectively communicate or interact meaningfully with assistant. Makes work environment uncomfortable at best. Position had potential, had looked forward to position after interviewing yet person during interview process was NOT the person in the office. Jekyll/Hyde personality to say the least.
