"I have spent the last seven years interning at Rossway Swan. I began my experience at Rossway Swan as a legal intern and have been given the opportunity to work as a Summer Associate for the Firm for the last 2 years. I can say that I have learned more about the everyday practice of law from my hands-on experience at Rossway Swan than I have learned in my three years of legal education. At Rossway Swan, every employee is dedicated to ensuring the best experience for you whether that include exposure to multiple practice areas, providing you with the opportunity to communicate directly with clients, or having the ability to observe expert attorneys in the courtroom. As a Summer Associate, I have not only had the opportunity to draft motions for appellate courts, but I have had the opportunity to communicate directly with clients to draft pleadings, including those necessary for guardianship proceedings. Rossway Swan is a firm dedicated to building attorneys and professional relationships."
