I’ve been fortunate to find not only wonderful colleagues at MoFo, but mentors and friends who are invested in my growth and success as a woman in this profession. Jessica Kaufman is one of those people. She challenges me to take on tasks I may not know I’m ready for, to take ownership of the knowledge and skills I’ve developed, and sometimes to just take a break. Teaming up with a partner like Jessica is more than working together to reach our goals on a particular matter; it’s having someone in your corner who is willing to give you the opportunities. So, when we’re in the middle of a hearing and learn the client is willing to let the associate on the team argue one of our motions, Jessica is there switching seats to give me first chair, whispering: “You got this.”
