I came into my internship at Nichols Law Offices not knowing if I wanted to be a lawyer. Furthermore, I was apprehensive about working in an office for the first time. Everyone looked so serious and business like. I wasn’t used to that level of formality. But, then my new boss, Craig Nichols, introduced me to the office. He then told me that there were only three rules that I had to follow: Do the right thing, get that “thing” done, and don’t be a jerk while doing it. I knew as soon as he said those things that I had come to the right place. Those three rules not only have helped me in the internship, but also will stay with me going forward.
The people at Nichols Law Offices have welcomed me with open arms, and I have learned more than I could ever have imagined. As a firm that deals primarily with immigration, I feel that I am also making a difference too. We get to help people come to the greatest country in the world. My internship has been a great experience so far, and I’m so excited to see where it takes me.
