I am a classic Latham boomerang. I started as an intern in the records department, I then filled a vacant spot in the library, before moving out of state to attend university. One day, while reading about Latham’s culture in the American Lawyer, I realized how much I missed the firm. So I decided to return, which has proved to be a great decision, as my career has truly blossomed. I re-started in the library, then became a paralegal. Currently I am a senior paralegal for the Environment, Land & Resources Practice and I also served as the Chairman of the Planning Commission in my city, thanks to all that I have learned at the firm. This is not a place that says “no” when you want to try new things. I can’t think of any place better to work.
