I joined Herrick full time in 2022 working with the IT Department, but I had previously been an intern with the Herrick team through Legal Outreach when I was in High School. Legal Outreach is a law-based curriculum that provides social and academic support to students so they can matriculate to competitive colleges. The program really changed my life and career trajectory, and I still feel a strong connection to that program and the administrators. Real Estate Department Chair, Belinda Schwartz, is an Advisory Board member at Legal Outreach, and the firm’s commitment to the organization is personally significant to me.

I interned with the Herrick IT department almost 15 years ago, and on my first day back at the firm in 2022 all sorts of memories came back to me when I entered the office! The sense of community at Herrick is something I hadn’t yet experienced professionally. Herrick continues to provide me with mentorship and professional development as I am constantly learning from the engineering, software development, support and adoption teams. Working with so many highly educated professionals continues to provide learning opportunities, challenge me on a daily basis and push me out of my comfort zone.

I joined Herrick in March of 2007. What I immediately liked about the firm was the friendly and supportive environment. I truly enjoy working with such dedicated and hard-working people and am proud to work for a company that appreciates and cares for its employees and is devoted to its clients.

I joined the Herrick family in 2005. One of the first things I noticed was the buzzing energy of the firm, and an environment where people genuinely enjoyed themselves and their work. What I’ve come to appreciate the most however is the many opportunities for growth I’ve found by working alongside colleagues who enjoy sharing their knowledge with me.

Herrick has been my second home since 1999 – a place where I’m able to work closely with excellent lawyers in a diverse range of practice areas. I’ve been at the firm a long time, but I’m constantly learning and growing as a professional, and that keeps me engaged. I’m also proud to be part of an administrative team that really cares about our work, and each other.
