Former Summer Associate Testimonials

As a summer associate, I learned that people are Holland & Knight's most valuable asset. The firm helps us find a balance between work and our personal lives, even though the two often overlap with my colleagues being among my closest friends. The partners and management have invested in me and taken risks with me. They have given me the tools to succeed, including mentoring, training and the opportunity to work on pro bono matters to gain trial experience. From the start, they encouraged me to work with clients, go to court and do everything I could to become a better lawyer.
Holland & Knight has an unparalleled commitment to your long-term success. As a summer associate, I received a tremendous amount of mentoring, training and substantive work that prepared me for the complex matters I now work on as a litigation associate. For me, the one-on-one mentoring is priceless: you never face a challenge alone. Additionally, it's a myth that a litigation associate at a large firm does not receive any courtroom experience. By my third year at Holland & Knight, I had already worked on several trials and attended numerous hearings, depositions and mediations.
