Jesus. I did not expect this to blow up the way it did. I just wanted to make sure nobody ever had to endure the same shit I did at this office.
AMA it is. I have to be careful because I'm sure they'll know exactly who I am if I go into too much detail. There were a lot of questions but I'll try to answer them in order. If I miss one, just lemme know:
I am not OP. I think OP was smarter and didn't even go for the second interview unlike yours truly.
Firm- It's a general practice firm. They do indeed do all the stuff it lists on the website.
Partners/Associates - Only partner I met was Shotkin.
Tina - I don't think that's even her real name. Put her info into the NYS bar website to see if she's an admitted attorney, came back negative soooo. . . Don't know if she's single but y'all could try.
Office dynamic - The whole office is run purely by Chinese females. The only white presence in the office is Shotkin, who sits in the back making personal phone calls. They legit only use his signature to sign legal documents. I have not seen another other partners or white males.
Name Tags - No
Youtube Ad - The YouTube video is for their old firm. Some of those people featured in the video no longer work there. The ad apparently still runs on the Chinese channels in the tristate area. (I only know because they have an ad run time schedule posted in the conference room) The law office itself has changed it's name several times over the past year. It was Shotkin, Lee, and Wang. Then Shotkin and Associates. Then the name we have now.
Picnic chairs - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DQC9HRG/re ... kAbESJ8F4R
and they probably bought the 4 pack to save money.
Clientele - amazingly all sorts. But some very. . . Odd ones would include English speaking male trying to prove a legitimate marriage to USCIS to his non-English speaking wife.
Reporting - I would report them but apparently it's non anonymous and I have no proof or photos to back any of the things up. They refused to give me a copy of my employment contract and I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THIS, They confiscate your cell phone when you show up at work and hold on to it until you leave for work.
These following questions, I can't answer. It's too specific because they'd know exactly who I was.
How long were you there?
What was the final straw?
And yes, somebody please pay me because they refuse to claiming I broke our employment contract and they threatened to take me to court. :/
