Console Mattiacci’s own Emily Derstine Friesen was featured as a 2017 Drexel, Thomas R. Kline School of Law Rad Grad. In the article she explains the differences between the practice of law and law school. She also discusses how it feels to hit the ground running as a new attorney finding success.
Ms. Derstine Friesen graduated from Kline School of Law in the fall of 2016 and started as a full-time associate at Console Mattiacci in Philadelphia. She has barely been practicing a year and already has an impressive $51 million dollar verdict under her belt.
Although, Ms. Derstine-Friesen says that law school is almost nothing like the actual practice of law, she cites the Frankel Appellate Litigation Clinic at Kline Law School as a great way to find opportunities to develop the skills one needs in the context of representing and advocating on behalf of clients.
Ms. Derstine Friesen is entering her second year as an associate at Console Mattiacci, learn more about her here.
