Ms. Fiorina and Ms. Gomez participated in the firm’s 2022 Summer Associate program, where they gained tangible legal experience while working with partners and associates at the firm. Our summer associates receive direct exposure to the legal process by attending closings, hearings/trials, depositions, negotiations and business meetings that take place throughout the summer. Seminars, luncheons and outings offer informal settings to further develop professional and personal ties to the firm and its attorneys.
Greenbaum’s summer program is coordinated by our partner Stephanie G. Reckord, who as a former Greenbaum summer associate herself can personally attest to the value provided to participants in the program.
