My experience joining Doerner laterally was very positive. I appreciated the opportunity to immediately begin building on my litigation experience by representing Doerner’s clients in a variety of industries and lawsuits with wide-ranging subject matter. New additions to our team easily integrate into our Firm’s supportive culture. We value teamwork and camaraderie. I feel like that aspect of our culture not only achieves the best results for our clients, but it makes practicing law more rewarding when your colleagues are also your friends.
