Associate attorneys at Heidman Law Firm receive mentoring in several ways as they develop their practice. A team of Partners provides regular training and guidance. Each Associate is also paired with a Partner for one-on-one mentoring. Heidman prides itself on having an open-door policy so that Associates are comfortable working closely with Partners, Associates, staff, and other members of the Heidman team.

Associates have many opportunities to expand and build their skills in critical thinking and legal analysis through research and writing. In addition, Associates routinely have direct client interaction, spend time in the courtroom, and are exposed to a variety of legal matters. Associates are actively involved in client matters and are given a good deal of responsibility. At the same time, Associates are granted flexibility and autonomy in managing their workload and developing their skills and practice. Each Associate is hired with the expectation that he or she will become a Partner with the firm in the future.
