Former Summer Associate Testimonials

As a summer associate with Holland & Knight, I learned from hardworking and insightful attorneys serving clients all over the world. I was assigned to diverse matters that challenged me to develop my abilities and allowed me to grow as a lawyer. The collaboration at the firm, complex and interesting matters, as well as the high expectations from colleagues and clients, provided me with the skills to create a successful practice. I joined Holland & Knight motivated to be the best attorney I could be, and I maintain that same motivation – nearly a decade later.
Working at Holland & Knight as a summer associate played a critical role in my development as an attorney. I was given substantive assignments in a variety of different legal practice areas, helping me to focus on the type of law that I wanted to practice after graduating from law school. It was also personally rewarding and fun – my work product was relied upon, my opinions were valued and I met a lot of great people.
