  • Working at Brattys has been a truly rewarding experience for me. I've been here for over a year and a half now and I can confidently say that I've found a place where I can grow and expand my knowledge. From the very first day I was welcomed on to an amazing team in the condo department and immediately felt like a valued member of the team. I work alongside some of the most experienced clerks in the field who are willing to listen and assist me with my questions. Working hard and closely as a team, we make each day enjoyable. In short, I've learned so much since working at Brattys and needless to say, I look forward to growing within the firm.

  • I have been an employee of Brattys for the last 21 years. Brattys is a fast paced real estate law firm, with a great staff. My co-workers have always tried to work as a team which Brattys encourages. They show their appreciation to their staff with both a Christmas and summer event. The lawyers are friendly and approachable. When I first started they quickly remembered my name and even took an interest in me as more than just an employee.
