Natalie Ramirez, a paralegal and client relations manager at the Men's Divorce Law Firm run by Winter Park divorce attorney Jeffrey Feulner, says she has worked for other law offices during her eight years in the industry, but none was as employee-friendly as her current employer.

Feulner pays 100% of his staff's health insurance benefits. He allows employees to work flexible hours, with the option of working from home when needed. He helps pay for health club memberships and provides a breakfast each day of oatmeal and granola.

 Jeffrey Feulner
Jeffrey Feulner started Men’s Divorce Law Firm seven years ago. His 14 employees are all women. He says that didn’t happen by design: When he fills a job he looks for a certain type of person — family-first employees who are eager to volunteer in the community.
For afternoon snacks, he offers pretzels, popcorn and chocolate, alongside bottled water, soda and gourmet coffee. "I feel like it's really important to create an environment, a culture, where the primary focus is on the individual and their family life as opposed to the product we're creating," Feulner says. "There are ways that I could personally be more profitable as the lone shareholder of the firm, but I feel a great responsibility to my employees."

Ramirez says the firm's workers "have a say in what goes on. It's like being in a close-knit family, and I've never experienced that in a law firm before."
