Former Summer Associate Testimonials

At Holland & Knight, I learned that there's a lot more to practicing law than the legal work. Firm leadership truly values doing good and helping our local communities and the world. We handle challenging and sophisticated cases, and my colleagues are innovative, caring people. They have helped me find a balance between life and the law, as well as opened the door to opportunities for pro bono work. Holland & Knight gives me the freedom and support to dedicate my time to the social issues that I believe in.
As a summer associate at Holland & Knight, I experienced the firm's culture firsthand and worked on interesting and challenging matters as part of a team. Even busy partners and senior management went out of their way to get to know me and to share their experiences with me. Being trained and mentored by seasoned lawyers across different practice groups allowed me to develop and broaden my skill set. I left the summer associate program with a great feeling, and I was excited to start my career at a place where I knew I’d work together with talented colleagues on complex issues.
