I chose McKool Smith because I wanted substantive opportunities at a junior level, and my first two years at the firm have far exceeded my expectations. In my first 6 months at McKool Smith, I first chaired a half dozen depositions in three different cases, wrote complicated and interesting briefs from cover to cover, and participated in a handful of court appearances.

McKool Smith offers young lawyers tremendous opportunity and responsibility. As a first year lawyer, I went to trial three times. Despite being a junior member of the team, I oversaw trial briefing, stood up in court to argue evidentiary disputes, and was even given the opportunity to conduct the direct examination of a key fact witness.

The close-knit collaboration between partners and associates at McKool Smith fosters quality training and early opportunities for young attorneys like myself. Further, McKool Smith’s general “free-market” approach to practice groups allows me the opportunity to get involved in a broad range of practice areas in varying jurisdictions.
