Faces of Mentoring - Heather G. Sowald, Esq.

To me, mentoring a young attorney is a way of “paying it forward.” I was fortunate to have been mentored by my mother, and I, in turn, have mentored many young attorneys over the years.

We all know that there is a great divide between law school and learning how to practice law and operate a law practice. It is incumbent upon us to give of our knowledge to less-experienced lawyers to help them bridge this gap.

We can all “pay it forward” and pass along important lessons to young attorneys that will last them a lifetime.
