See what our 2016 summer associates had to say below when asked, “How would you describe GT to other law students?”.
“I would describe Greenberg as a place where you don’t feel like a law student, you feel like an attorney. The firm is special, in that the typical firm hierarchy is replaced with a feeling of continuity from the partners to the associates. This allows for the associates to succeed through hard work and taking advantage of all the opportunities that the firm provides. Furthermore, starting a new job can be a daunting experience, but Greenberg has a fantastic support staff and mentor program that sets up its associates for success from day one.” – Alexander Iparraguirre, University of Florida, Class of 2017
“For me, GT is a law firm that is invested in honing the skills of its young attorneys by providing training and mentorship experiences as well as opportunities to work on substantive projects. GT also focuses on training associates in the skills required to provide quality services for clients, who are looking for attorneys with more than just legal advice but also an understanding of how their business works.” – Stephanie Jimenez, Harvard Law School, Class of 2017
“At first I wasn’t sure how I would like working at a big law firm, but Greenberg Traurig quickly eased my skepticism. The smaller office environment in the LA office provided unique mentorship opportunities, and gave me the chance to work on substantive projects with both associates and partners. – Sarah Brenner, University of Michigan, Class of 2017
“The best part about working at GT this summer was the sense that I got that I was actually a valued member of the GT team. What I mean is that as opposed to some other firms where I’ve heard summers and even new associates are spoon fed assignments or kept to a very specific track (i.e. 1st years can only do these tasks, 2nd years can only do these tasks, etc.), what I really liked about GT was the sense I got that once you’re here, the only limit to what you can do is yourself.” – Mark Sanchez, New York University, Class of 2017
“One of my most meaningful experiences this summer was contributing to GT’s pro bono efforts as a volunteer for the Courtroom Advocates Project (CAP). Applying skills I had learned in law school and developed over the summer to provide direct assistance to a victim of domestic violence was extremely rewarding.” – Erica Berman, University of Michigan, Class of 2017
