Culture

As a workplace, the firm has worked hard to establish and maintain a culture of professionalism, diversity, community, growth, pride, appreciation, philanthropy, work-life balance and fun. The firm has repeatedly been selected as a Baltimore Sun Top 100 Workplaces and a Baltimore Business Journal Best Place to Work Finalist. As part of its recent office renovation, the firm built the PK Law Café where attorneys and employees gather for morning coffee, lunch, happy hour and firm events. Organized by the PK Law Fun Committee, the firm regularly engages in fun activities including outings to O’s games, karaoke night, bowling, paint night, pumpkin decorating, garage top barbeques and ice cream socials. The firm also participates in firm sponsored community service activities such as their annual Food Box Program, Dress for Success, Toys for Tots and back to school supply drives. The success of these efforts can be seen in the numbers.

60% of our employees have been with PK Law for five years or more, 41% for 10 years or more and 15 PK Law employees have been with the firm for 20 years or more! PK Law looks forward to continued success and growth over the next thirty years and beyond.
