Written by Litigation Secretary (Former Employee) from San Francisco, CA on June 12, 2019
Unfortunately, Wilson Elser provided me with very little training. I had no experience with the Appellate court and had to do filings with very little guidance.

The hardest part of my job was dealing with management that was not supportive. We had an office manager who would occasionally yell if she was not pleased.
