Paralegal at Sacks & Sacks
Posted 4 months ago in New York City, NY

"The pay at Sacks & Sacks, LLP has been decent. I was hired to work with a Junior Attorney at a salary of $29,000.00. I was given a raise after two years of employment of $35,000.00. My family relocated to Georgia and as I tried to resign I was given another raise with a salary at $45,000.00 my third year within the firm. I was then denied any raises within the last 5 years with an option of overtime to compensate the many late hours and weekends worked. Currently there is no overtime pay."
