Anyone have any experience with them and can tell me what they're like in terms of culture and general day-to-day pleasantness? I'm just curious to hear impressions beyond what I saw at the CB.

I should clarify that you won't be outting yourself -- I am an 0L working here before law school, I will have no idea who you are.

Could you speak about the culture of the firm generally? And the atmosphere of the office? Cleary has a rep for being "quirky"...could you elaborate on that??

Sorry, didn't see this had been posted. Obviously I can't compare Cleary to any other firm, as I've only worked here, but I find it to be a great place to work. The people here are very open and friendly. I've e-mailed a couple that I haven't ever personally worked with when I've had questions about their law schools, and everyone was very helpful. The firm seems to put a lot of emphasis on community bonding activities within the office -- they had a firm softball team over the summer and are now running a wellness competition with another firm in the area and have "teams" within the office.

You can be serious about your work without being 100% serious all the time, and I think Cleary manages I good balance there. I'd rather not say much more, since I think there are only a few 0Ls here and I don't want to out myself, but please do PM me if you want to ask about specifics.
