How To Succeed In Law By Really Trying

Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to be surrounded by talented, energetic young lawyers. When I was starting out, those peers served as role models and motivation, provided support, and sometimes offered a healthy dose of gallows humor through the completion of a marathon project. Over time, I started to work with lawyers who had less experience than me, at first just a few years, and now frequently fifteen years or more. For about eight years I was the partner in charge of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein’s summer associate program, and for the last decade I have been the firm hiring partner, trying to identify people who will be successful in our practice. From these experiences, and from talking with partners in and out of my firm, I have developed some suggestions for law students and younger lawyers about succeeding in law.
