Joining Dovel & Luner

Despite my life-long ambition to become an attorney, I didn’t decide to go to law school until my late twenties. Part of me feared that becoming a lawyer would close the door on my other passions. I spent years as an entrepreneur, selling products and providing services that I believed made the world a better place. Would becoming a lawyer doom me to a never-ending cycle of billing hours working on behalf of big corporate clients who did not always care about right and wrong?

If I knew about Dovel & Luner, I would not have feared. Dovel checks all the boxes. There is ample opportunity for entrepreneurship. Within two months of joining the firm, I conducted my own investigation, drafted a complaint, and filed it. Dovel also offers real opportunities for early substantive experience. Shortly after joining the firm, I briefed and argued a preliminary-injunction motion, participated in two depositions, and attended a mediation. Not even the so-called “litigation boutiques” offer the same level of substantive ownership so quickly. And, most important to me, Dovel believes in fighting for the little guy. Every day, I wake up grateful to be part of this team where I can be entrepreneurial, obtain substantive responsibility and top-tier training, and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
