"One of our biggest clients for property tax appeal work is a large drugstore chain. As a second-year associate, I was able to work from start to finish on an assessment challenge in Pinellas County, including handling the hearing. My 45-minute argument before the special magistrate was a springboard to significantly more client interaction."
"As a first-year associate, I worked very closely with the head of our litigation department, Terry Young, on a seven-week medical malpractice jury trial. Terry trusted me to draft motions and memoranda of law, and several times during trial asked me to conduct research that he needed immediately for the testimony of key witnesses. This intimate involvement in a high stakes trial was an experience that I would not have gotten anywhere else as a first-year associate."
"As a first year associate with the firm, I was given more responsibility than many of my law school classmates working at other firms. For example, I had the sole responsibility of preparing a senior partner for trial in a multi-million dollar lawsuit. I also had the opportunity to travel to the Cayman Islands to assist in a multi-national acquisition. I believe that the experience young associates receive at the firm sets us apart from every other law firm in Florida."
"I have been greatly pleased with my experience from my very first day. I sincerely enjoy working for the firm, where the genuine friendliness, care and interest of the individuals create a unique firm-wide culture of true camaraderie. I have experienced first-hand the firm’s dedication to excellent mentoring and career development through constant feedback on assignments and specialized training sessions designed for new associates."
