How did you get your job?

Through a series of fortuitous events! I’d been applying for summer positions without much luck, then near the end of the semester I participated in the Jimi Derrick Moot Court Competition and got particularly good scores in the second round. So I decided to look up our judge, Mr. Albert Gutierrez, who works at a law firm here in San Antonio. I sent him an email and inquired if the firm might need a summer clerk — he replied and asked me to come in for an interview! They offered me a summer clerk position and it’s been an amazing opportunity.

What did you like most about your job?

Accompanying Mr. Gutierrez to court and helping with aspects of litigation has been my absolute favorite.

How do you think this experience has helped you in your career path?

More than anything I wanted to experience different fields of the law and see what practice looks like day-to-day. Working at PMBG this summer has exceeded all my expectations and given me invaluable insight as to what type of law I want to pursue. Most importantly, I feel they’ve given me an outstanding example of the type of lawyer I wish to be. The firm is like family to one another yet they always maintain absolute professionalism, integrity, and do impeccable work. I am more excited than ever to be pursuing a career in law.
