What do/did you like most about the job?
One of my favorite things about being a law clerk at Patel|Gaines is the constant opportunity for growth. I am constantly receiving valuable feedback and advice that I know will be useful throughout my career.
How do you think this experience has helped you in your career path?
I have always wanted to work somewhere in the business law realm. Prior to working at Patel|Gaines, I wasn’t aware of how many different areas of law were within business law. What I appreciate most about this experience is the opportunity to learn about various avenues of business law. It has helped me narrow my focus on what I want to practice.
What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned at this job?
