Rainmaker Q&A: Holland & Knight's Joseph Varner
Attorney Joe Varner was profiled in Law360's Rainmaker Q&A, where he discussed different aspects of his litigation career, including his most difficult time landing a client, advice to aspiring rainmakers and the most challenging aspect of remaining a rainmaker.
"My mentor, United States District Judge Steven D. Merryday, chief judge for the Middle District of Florida, when he was in private practice, always said that if you do good work, you’ll get business," said Mr. Varner. "I tried to follow his advice, and I believe developing a reputation as a capable and ethical trial lawyer would be the single most important skill I can identify. Obviously, there are many other important skills as well."
