Meet Our Summers and Law Clerks
Former Summer Associates and Clerks share their experience at Robbins Geller:
“I appreciated getting to preview the types of projects I'd be doing as an associate. Not to mention the satisfaction of knowing that my work was actually getting put to good use litigating a case, rather than gathering dust in a drawer."
-- Dana Martindale, Cornell Law School
“As a summer associate, I was invited by Paul Geller to assist in his preparation for, and to attend, the deposition of General Tommy Franks, the former Commander of the United States Central Command who led the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan as well as the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The experience gave me invaluable lessons in deposition strategy and also showed me that even the Firm’s name partners make it a priority to train and mentor young lawyers.”
– Chris Martins, DePaul University College of Law
“As a summer associate, I assisted a partner in preparing for an appeal before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which resulted in a favorable reversal. That victory alone was noteworthy, but then, after I returned to the Firm as an associate, the United States Supreme Court took up the case and ruled 9-0 in our favor. The opportunity to play a role in such a high-profile success was truly gratifying and has resoundingly affirmed my decision to join Robbins Geller.”
– David W. Hall, UC Hastings College of the Law
"Without a doubt, working with the Enron trial team was the highlight of my clerking experience. Assisting the team of attorneys prosecuting one of the largest and most spectacular securities fraud scandals in history was an invaluable and intense experience."
-- Jennifer Gmitro, University of San Diego School of Law
