“I’ve been lucky enough to participate in Gerber Ciano Kelly Brady’s Summer Associate Program for the past two summers. My experience has been wonderful, as I’ve been given the opportunity to work alongside talented attorneys who have helped me to develop my legal research and writing skills. I’ve been able to draft numerous motions, review insurance policies, work on discovery responses, sit in on depositions, and research a broad scope of legal questions throughout my time with the firm. Each person I’ve had the opportunity to work with has been incredibly helpful, giving me insightful feedback and answering any questions I might have along the way. After my first summer, I knew I wanted to continue working with the firm and was given the opportunity to continue clerking part-time during the school year. During that time, I grew to appreciate the firm’s friendly and supportive atmosphere even more. Since then, I have been offered a position to work with the firm post-graduation. Being able to work at Gerber Ciano Kelly Brady has given me invaluable experience and I look forward to continuing to grow with the firm.”
