Employees Give Firm an A+ on Culture

BAL has won the Best Place to Work accolade for the Dallas Metropolitan Area 2022 by Comparably, one of only 15 companies selected for the honor. The award-winning corporate immigration firm scored an “A+” for culture and ranked seventh on Comparably’s vaunted list.

Comparably also ranked BAL a “Best Company for Diversity” and a “Best Company for Women” for 2021 and a “Best HR Team” for 2022. BAL’s Managing Partner Jeremy Fudge ranked in the top 5% of CEOs of similarly-sized DFW companies.

“This recognition is especially rewarding because it comes from our own employees,” said Jeremy. “They are the ones who deliver world-changing service to our clients, who create our unique culture and make this truly the best place to work.”

The Comparably ranking is based entirely on anonymous employee feedback spanning nearly 20 core culture metrics, giving job-seekers transparent insight into the companies possessing exceptional workplace cultures. Since launching in 2016, Comparably has accumulated 10 million ratings on 60,000 U.S. companies.

“During the extraordinary conditions of the past two years, BAL leadership has focused on what we can do to support our employees—not only their important work for our clients, but their wellness and their professional and personal aspirations,” said COO Leslie C. Rohrbacker. “We’ve intentionally added a strong framework of supports – from unlimited vacation to firm-wide downtime for development and individual pursuits, to affinity groups – and we’re thrilled these programs and benefits are having a positive impact on the lives of our employees.”

BAL has fostered a people-centered culture from its founding. The law firm’s oneBAL philosophy embraces work-sharing across nationwide offices, operating as a single profit center. This spirit of collaboration and support impacts more than BAL’s diverse team – clients benefit from shared expert knowledge across the entire firm.

“At BAL, it’s always been of upmost importance that we lead with care and compassion, while making sure that we carve out time for fun,” said Partner Frieda Garcia. “It’s very special to work at a place where we focus on building each other up instead of competing with each other, so that we enjoy working together as we make a positive difference in the world.”
