My summer at Trucker Huss provided the best possible experience and opportunity to practice ERISA before graduating law school. Each assignment or project introduced a new and exciting area of ERISA, and the amazing attorney’s at Trucker Huss helped guide me through the complex and nuanced areas with expertise and patience. My experience throughout the summer cemented my interest in ERISA law and my confidence that Trucker Huss is an excellent law firm to begin my career.
Throughout my summer at Trucker Huss, I was exposed to the many different facets of ERISA work, from advising clients on newly published health care regulations to preparing for litigation. By end of the summer, I was eager to continue building a career practicing ERISA. My experience of working at Trucker Huss has been exactly what I was looking for: the opportunity to work on challenging, dynamic projects that are typically found in big firms combined with the collegial culture of a smaller firm.
During my summer at Trucker Huss, I experienced the many challenging and complicated aspects of ERISA work. I had the opportunity to work on projects in many different practice areas such as, health & welfare, qualified plans, executive compensation, and litigation. Directors and associates were eager to answer all of my questions and fully explain the legal reasoning behind their answers. I also participated in the firm’s social events where I had meaningful informal time with attorney at all levels. I left my summer knowing that Trucker Huss was exactly where I wanted to practice once I graduated law school.
