Attorneys

Law Students

Choosing the law firm that is the right fit is one of the most important decisions a law student will have to make. We offer our associates substantive work experience early on through the lean staffing of our matters. Simultaneously, our associates receive the training and mentoring required to advance their careers. Our first, second, and third year attorneys regularly comment that they are offered opportunities and responsibilities which their colleagues at other firms have not yet experienced.

“One of the reasons I chose Farella Braun + Martel is its reputation for high quality, sophisticated, and complex legal work. I was pleased to find that the firm’s actual work far exceeds its reputation.”

During our summer program, we provide our summer associates with a realistic glimpse of their future as attorneys. Our unique rotation system pairs summer associates with partners as well as senior associates to impart an understanding of our different practice areas and the kind of work they will do, the clients they will serve and the people with whom they will work, should they choose to join us.

If you are looking for a firm committed to training and promoting the best attorneys in a collegial and supportive environment, Farella is the place for you.
