What are you looking forward to most about the Summer Associate Program at Lagerlof, LLP?
I’m excited to learn what it’s like working in a large firm with a group of lawyers who fiercely advocate for their clients. I have an interest in tax and trusts and estates and couldn’t think of a better place to gain experience from experts who help so many clients every day. (And the California sunshine doesn’t hurt, either!)
Why did you decide to go to law school and study to become a lawyer?
I decided to attend law school because being a lawyer is a way for me to directly make positive change in people’s lives during some of their most stressful and important moments.
