Joining Dovel & Luner
As a debater, I was drawn to the process of strategizing with my team, crafting arguments, and most importantly, practicing to hone our skills. When I transitioned to coaching a high school team, I worked hard to teach my students the value of regular practice and I saw firsthand how it improved their arguments.
I split summers both my first and second year of law school, and worked at prestigious big law firms in New York and D.C. as well as at Dovel & Luner. I was searching for a firm that would allow me to quickly shoulder responsibility and trust me to meaningfully contribute to its cases. In particular, I wanted a firm that would emphasize the deliberate and repeated practice of oral argument skills.
At Dovel & Luner practicing trial skills was at the core of the firm’s identity, and I was a member of the team from my first day as a summer associate. I can’t imagine feeling more at home.
