Former Summer Associate Testimonials

At Holland & Knight, I have the opportunity to practice with partners who immediately took me under their wings and ensured I got experience working with clients and in the courtroom. They put me in situations that are out of my comfort zone, but force me to grow as an attorney. Thanks to the safety net they provide, I can take risks and reach my potential.
As a summer associate, I appreciated the fact that I had the ability to initially take assignments from many different practice areas and then later begin to focus on areas in which I was developing a stronger interest. I was also able to establish good working relationships with individual attorneys that have endured through the years and have helped to ground me at the firm. Summer associates are expected to handle challenging work – in return, they are provided with a realistic picture of the work life of an associate at Holland & Knight.
