Neal Gerber Eisenberg is proud to announce that it has been ranked by Vault as one of the leading law firms for attorney wellness and pro bono work. NGE was nationally ranked as the 7th best law firm in the new Wellness category, and ranked 26th in the Pro Bono category.
To determine their rankings, Vault asks associates to evaluate their firm on issues related to career development, job satisfaction, and quality of life. Associates commented that “the people who work at NGE are genuinely kind and want associates to succeed,” and that they enjoyed “the combination of interesting work, nice and professional colleagues, and humane billable-hour expectations.”
NGE has a strong focus on attorney and staff wellness, signing the American Bar Association’s Well-Being Pledge, and launching its Being Well initiative for all NGE attorneys and staff in 2019. Since launching the Being Well initiative, NGE has added several resources designed to help all attorneys and staff address the broad range of their personal needs, from family planning and fertility complexities to the care of aging loved ones.
In addition, the firm encourages all of its attorneys to undertake at least 50 hours of pro bono services per year and provides support through strong relationships with local legal aid agencies. In recognition of NGE's dedication to pro bono work, five of our attorneys received the 2019 Award for Excellence in Pro Bono Service from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and the Chicago Chapter of the Federal Bar Association for their tireless work on Trahan v. Lake County Jail Medical Department and on Hopkins v. Duckhorn et al.
