At Smith Anderson, it is our goal to foster a supportive environment that allows our associates to further develop into outstanding attorneys. When we welcome new associates, they have already demonstrated enormous potential in their course work, in clerkships and in other associated career-related pursuits and activities.
From the beginning, each new associate is assigned a seasoned lawyer to mentor them through the first stage of their career. Our mentors make themselves readily accessible to their associate attorneys – offering individualized guidance about how to progress their professional development and by consulting on specific projects and assignments. Mentors direct associates regarding ways to expand their knowledge of substantive law and ensure they are receiving a wide depth of experiences.
