Sheri Warsh, a partner in the firm’s Trusts & Estates group, shared a personal story about a time associate Adam Garber went above and beyond for a client in “Here’s How Young Associates Actually Impress Law Firm Partners.” Part of JD Supra’s new Firm Leadership series, the article explores ways an associate can stand out and make a positive impression in their new firm from the partners' perspective.
From the article:
"Adam Garber, an associate in our Trusts & Estates Group, accompanied me to a hospital to witness the Will of a terminally ill client. Typically, on such a hospital visit, I would have also brought with me a notary, however I didn’t do so on this occasion, because I had been told that the hospital would provide one. Of course, when we arrived and called the hospital department to arrange the notary, one was not available. Without prompting from me, Adam understood that the client had many more important things on his mind, and didn’t need yet another headache. He walked down to the notary’s office and camped outside the door until she arrived. He then immediately brought her to the client’s hospital room. The client, went from being extremely annoyed to very relieved as a result of Adam’s diligence, which helped to make a difficult and stressful situation for a client a little less so."
