Former Summer Associate Testimonials

"Being a lawyer" can be an amorphous concept when you're a student. However, during Holland & Knight's summer associate program, I got to do real work, for real clients, with practicing attorneys as co-workers. Based on the substantive opportunities I had and the co-workers I got to know, I feel there was no better fit for me. The most valuable part of joining Holland & Knight is that the firm invested in me not only as a lawyer, but as a member of the team. The training I've received has been critical to my first steps as an attorney.
During my job search, I was looking for a firm where I could stay my entire career and have a robust, sophisticated practice and make partner, even when I decided to raise a family. Holland & Knight checked all these boxes. Early on I was quickly introduced to the business of practicing law and have had amazing, invaluable mentors who have pushed me to reach and exceed what I perceived to be my full potential. Today, I have made partner and have two children. Through it all, I have had amazing opportunities to participate in all aspects of a corporate and securities practice and continued to follow my career path.
