Law Week Colorado Quotes Peter Koclanes and Allison Mikulecky Regarding Law Firm Mentorships
November 27, 2017 – Law Week Colorado quotes Sherman & Howard litigation attorney, Peter Koclanes, and construction attorney, Allison Mikulecky in the article “Getting on Board.” Sherman & Howard has a mentorship program where more experienced attorneys will help the new associates get experience with trial work by bringing them into depositions, then having them help prepare to take them and graduate to taking the depositions, first with and then without supervision. The process is the same with trials and hearings. “And so that’s built into our firm culture,” said Peter. “You can hear about and even practice in certain law schools, trial advocacy programs, depositions, but until you do it, you don’t know how to do it.”
“I’m blessed and thankful that Sherman & Howard has a culture where they look for opportunities for associates to learn, Allison said. “They have an open-door policy where they’re open to answering any questions or concerns about strategy or questions about the economics of litigation.”
