The Law Office of Dominick W. Lavelle would like to introduce our Legal Interns. These are current undergraduate students who are working at the firm. They are learning to draft legal documents such as BPs, Summons & Complaints, Subpoenas, correspondence to clients, drafting Motions and Opposition papers to motions. They are enthusiastic and quick learners and it has been a pleasure to add them to our team. We started by hiring 2 in the fall term and have now hired 2 more. One intern Pamela Langro has already been accepted to law school and will start law school in the fall. Managing Attorney Emily Lavelle attended St. John's Career Fairs on behalf of the firm and has this to say: "It was exciting to return to my Alma Mater and meet and hire future alums which allows me the opportunity to give back to St. John's who gave me the opportunity to attend both under grad and law school on scholarship. They bring a an upbeat attitude towards learning and taking on new projects which has helped them learn quickly. They are making a positive impact on our office in getting out work and helping our clients. I look forward to bringing on more interns as these graduate. I know they all have bright futures in the legal field."
