– Alex Foster, Partner, Healthcare

“AGG’s summer program provides summer associates with real-world experience of what it’s like to work at a metropolitan law firm. Summer associates’ calendars are filled with a balance of social and educational programing that uniquely fosters mentorship and guidance from AGG partners and associates, as well as the development of a sense of comradery between the summer associate class.  AGG’s summer program thoughtfully focuses on getting to know the firm’s various practice groups and learning about each group’s practice and personality. I’m so thankful that I was able to participate in AGG’s summer program and always look forward to meeting each new class of summer associates.”

Lauren Light, Associate, Corporate

“The summer program at AGG provides a real glimpse into life at the firm. AGG gives its summer associates a mix of assignments in a wide range of practice areas so summer associates can gain insight into the numerous industries that AGG represents, while still allowing flexibility to pursue assignments in specific practice areas if the summer associate chooses. These projects and assignments allow for the summer associates to get to real-world experience on complex client matters while also building connections with the associates, partners, and paralegals across the firm. Five years later, I still look back at my summer associate experience as one of the best professional experiences in my life and that is a testament to the time and resources that AGG commits to it.”

Paul Krebs, Associate, Real Estate


“Participating in AGG’s summer associate program confirmed that AGG was the place where I wanted to spend my career. AGG has a collegial, teamwork-oriented mentality and every attorney is valued as a member of a team working to provide the best possible service to our clients.”

Lauren Daniels, Associate, Corporate


“AGG is a wonderful place to be a summer associate. I worked with attorneys from nearly every practice group, and each of them took the time not only to familiarize me with the projects I was working on, but also to give me general insight into their practice areas. AGG is a great law firm because of its people, and I felt welcomed and valued from day one. By the end of the summer, I had made not only professional relationships with future colleagues, but also friendships. AGG’s supportive and collegial environment is the perfect place to build a successful career, and I am very happy I decided to spend my summer at AGG.”

Megan Mitchell, Partner, Litigation
