Davis Brown Law Firm Welcomes Five Summer Associates
Five law students joined Davis Brown for the summer where they will study and work under attorneys at the firm. Each summer associate is paired with an attorney mentor who can answer questions about the ins and outs of working in a law firm, technicalities of the law, working with senior attorneys, and client development, among others. The summer associate program is a valuable learning experience for the law students, and is a great benefit to the firm, bringing fresh ideas to the table.
