Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a lot of turnover?
GWB is fortunate to have a long history of quality, dependable employees. Our most senior staff members boast over 35 years of experience at GWB. The most frequent reason we lose employees is due to relocation of family members and retirement.
How soon do benefits begin?
Most insurance benefits begin one month after employment.
How many attorneys does a secretary support?
On average a secretary supports multiple attorneys. However, every secretarial position is unique allowing some secretaries to support three while others support one attorney.
Where do employees park?
A parking garage is attached to our building.
Is there much travel for staff?
Most required travel is within the local area during business hours. However, on a rare occasion, a case may require overnight travel away from home. In these instances, travel time is paid and the firm pays for the employee’s expenses. Most staff positions do not travel frequently.
How many attorneys does a paralegal work with?
Paralegals may work with anywhere from one attorney to six or more, based on the case. Typically, paralegals are assigned cases, and follow that case from beginning to end. Throughout the process they may work with any number of attorneys, depending on the size of the case.
Are staff members involved in local professional organizations?
SCUPA, LSPG and GSHRM are a few of the professional organizations in which staff are involved. The firm encourages participation in these local organizations by paying dues and fees for the monthly meetings.
Is there a lot of overtime?
Typically, GWB tries to keep overtime to a minimum; however, it is occasionally necessary. With our team environment, everyone is encouraged to pitch in and help out so no one is left to go it alone.
