Former Summer Associate Testimonials

H. Harold Lee
I chose to be a summer associate at Holland & Knight because I felt the firm would support my professional aspirations. The partners took serious interest in what I wanted to do with my career. They spent significant time teaching me, gradually giving me additional responsibilities and pushing me to achieve more. As part of the team approach, we had the opportunity to participate in "noodling" – putting our heads together to solve legal puzzles or rework countless pages of text into visual diagrams. The work required a lot of creativity that has further enhanced my skill set as an attorney.
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.
