My last four weeks were spent with Devine Timoney
Law Group in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. At Devine Timoney,
I was offered an immense variety of hands-on experience
within the litigation realm. My very second day at the office,
Evelyn Devine (partner at Devine Timoney Law Group)
invited me to a high/low arbitration. I had never experienced
an arbitration, nevertheless a high/low arbitration - which
essentially acts as a mini-trial. Needless to say, my time at
Devine Timoney was also truly one-of-a-kind. Evelyn Devine
and Patrick Timoney (also a partner at Devine Timoney Law
Group) placed a high value on experiential and practical
learning. While I was assigned various legal research and legal
writing tasks, it truly felt that their number one priority was
to allow me to have as many hands-on experiences as possible.
At one point, Evelyn instructed me to take a look at the firm
calendar, and decide which depositions and court hearings
I wanted to attend, and to simply notify the lead attorney
on the case that I would be tagging along. I honestly cannot
count on my two hands the number of depositions, hearings
and arbitrations I was exposed to within the short span of four
weeks.
Reflecting back on my experiences this past summer, the
term "invaluable" does not even begin to do the program
as well as my wonderful host firms any justice. In just eight
short weeks, the Diversity Program opened the door to my
first trial, my first arbitration, my first deposition, and my first
motions court attendance. I wholeheartedly cannot imagine
obtaining the same experience and warmth from anywhere
else - and for that, I am eternally grateful.
