Witherite Law Group Secures Top 100 Place to Work Honors For Fifth Year
DALLAS – The Dallas Morning News has once again named Witherite Law Group, formerly known as Eberstein Witherite, LLC a Top 100 Place to Work. This is the fifth consecutive year the personal injury law firm has achieved this recognition.
“It is a huge honor for our firm to make this prestigious list for another year,” said Amy Witherite, Founding Partner of Witherite Law Group. “We know it’s extremely competitive to earn a spot on this list for just one year. Our employees couldn’t be prouder to achieve this accomplishment for five years in a row.”
It is quite a feat to be named a Top 100 Place to Work for multiple years. According to the Dallas Morning News, each year, about 30-percent of the winners are new. This is the 11th year the newspaper has spotlighted employers who go above and beyond when it comes to treating workers with respect and giving them a sense of mission. Witherite Law Group first applied for the award in 2016 and has been grateful to receive it every year since.
“I think it goes back to our values,” said Paralegal Tiffany Florer, while explaining why she loves to work at Witherite Law Group. “Everybody believes in those values and tries to uphold them every day.”
Eberstein Witherite’s core values are respect, boldness, empathy, expertise, devotion and collaboration.
“It starts with the respect that we have for our clients.” said Senior Case Manager Diana Moreno. “When our clients call us, we know them by name. Our clients are not numbers to us. They are to the insurance company, but not to us. They are like our family members.”
Witherite Law Group’s “people first” mentality is evident throughout the firm and employees say it’s responsible for the family like atmosphere among their co-workers.
“At the end of the day, we’re all going to make sure that we’re doing what’s in the client’s best interest and we’re going to make sure that we fight for them,” said Attorney Wale Odetunde.
Many employees also credit the firm’s community outreach for building a strong company culture. Throughout the year, Witherite Law Group partners with schools to award scholarships, host reading days and teacher appreciation lunches, as well as provide coats, school uniforms, supplies and snacks for students in need. During the holidays, the firm gives away hundreds of turkeys to families, and stuffs a bus full of toys and clothing for the homeless. Employees participate in these initiatives and call the experience rewarding.
Finally, Witherite Law Group offers plenty of perks to keep employees engaged – including an annual State Fair of Texas day for the entire firm, internal competitions, social hours, personal development, and a “Kick Ass” award given each month to an employee with exceptional performance.
“It’s an easier job to come to every day when everybody is just as excited to get to work as you,” said Florer. “When I come in, I’m just excited to the computer turned on and see what’s going to happen.”
