Law school does a fine job instructing students in the law and how to think like a lawyer. But, the practice of law must be learned through professional experience and insightful mentoring. DBL provided me both of these key ingredients to professional development during my time as a summer associate. The lawyers at DBL made a point to involve me in hearings, client meetings, depositions and a variety of professional and social events. But perhaps most importantly, I received truly thoughtful mentoring about how to practice law with integrity, responsibility and a dedication to excellence.

DBL Law’s summer associate program was a wonderful experience. The program gave me the opportunity to engage in substantive legal work, explore a variety of practice areas, and to build relationships with attorneys and staff across the firm. My attorney mentors made an active effort to include me in court appearances, depositions, and client meetings, and were genuinely interested in getting to know me as a colleague. The invaluable experience made clear that DBL Law is invested in the success of its attorneys at every level.
