I have been at JMBM my entire career. I was a summer associate at JMBM back in 2002 and have been working in the Firm's Labor and Employment Department ever since I graduated from Harvard Law School in 2004. Not only have I learned a lot from some great mentors at the Firm, I have made some incredibly close friends during my time at JMBM. In fact, I have been a bridesmaid in two of my fellow associates' weddings and have planned many a social gathering to celebrate the birthday or accomplishment of a number of others. I have appreciated the ability to learn from such a diverse group of people while also developing the types of intimate working relationships only possible at a mid-size firm. In particular, I consider my department to be a second family who is always there to lend both professional and personal advice and guidance.
