Every year, we visit law schools, and seek resumés from yet other schools, to select candidates for our summer associate program. In reviewing candidates, we evaluate undergraduate performance, law school achievement, previous employment experience, extracurricular involvement in schools, interpersonal skills and genuine interest in practicing law within our community and with our law firm. We staff our summer program with the goal of satisfying our needs for new attorneys each fall. A full summer commitment typically is recommended for those who have not previously worked with us.
We consistently hire our new associates from the Summer Associates Program; however, we sometimes interview exceptional third-year law students for associate positions based on practice area needs.
