Employee Insights

During my afternoon bicycle commute, a young architectural intern named Mike rode with me for about five miles. We had a nice chat about bikes, bike trails and work. He was interested in what it is like to be a lawyer and asked, ”What is the best part of your job?” I was quick to answer: “The people at my office – they are amazing.”
