LAW NEWS NOVEMBER 2018
STARTED AS INTERNS, NOWWHERE TO?
Meet Our Sources of Gratitude: Micah and Kyle
When we look at the things we’re grateful for at our firm, we start with the wonderful people we have the pleasure of working with. A couple of months ago, we got to introduce Larry in the newsletter and explain how excited we are to have his contributions to the firm. Last month, Sonya highlighted her passion for serving others while wearing many hats within the firm. This month, we want to show our appreciation for everyone at the firm, and there’s no better way to do that than by showcasing the hard work and dedication of our interns.
The future for Micah is bright, and as he explains it, “I want to go to law school and potentially pursue something in conservation or the environment. Jack, who’s a prominent feature in the newsletter, has also inspired me. Kelly plugged me into Healers with Halos as a volunteer, and I can see a future for me with animals, as well.” Whatever he chooses, we can’t wait to witness his success.
But Micah isn’t our only star intern. Kyle Lalla is a junior at the UConn School of Business, and he’s been phenomenal in helping our firm, as well. Kyle is a quick learner, and he is very willing to do what it takes. As our new attorney and dear friend Larry is adjusting to life in his new digs at The Law Buildings, Kyle has been there every step of the way, so we don’t miss a beat. “I started off working on some
Micah Hardy came to us from the pre-law program at the University of Connecticut (UConn), and from the first minute, he’s done nothing but impress not just us attorneys but everyone at the offices. What began as merely an experiential internship has led to Micah taking on a very involved role at the firm. But don’t take our word for it. “I started off just by doing a lot of research, but that has
simple tasks for Paul and Kelly, but now I’m working hand in hand with clients — even going to hearings. I go wherever I can help and find the work very rewarding. My favorite part of the job is seeing the success of our clients. When we start a case, see it through, and our clients get the justice they deserve, there’s no feeling quite like it.” Maybe Kyle should get a raise, too! When we asked Kyle about his future, he displayed some exciting initiative. “I’d like to get my MBA, but there is a world of possibility ahead of me. The experience I get here on a daily basis is unparalleled, and I can’t help but think it will set me up on a great path.” Micah and Kyle are both amazing, and we couldn’t be more thankful to have them. We’re also fortunate to have the love and support of our families, a community that values us, and of course Jack around to provide company and comfort. Above all, we’re thankful for our clients. You make our lives easy to be grateful for, and no words can encapsulate our appreciation for that. –Paul Levin and Kelly Kasheta
evolved into so much more,” Micah explains. He operates in many different areas, but lately, Micah has taken on more of a leadership role within our intern structure. That’s not all, though. “A lot of what I do now is technology-based and handling those needs of the firm. Website maintenance, social media, IT issues — things like that.” What impresses us most about Micah isn’t just his competency but his ability to solve problems. “If I don’t know the answer, then Paul and Kelly give me the latitude to find solutions on my own.” It’s that kind of independence that’s propelled Micah to become irreplaceable to our team. “MY FAVORITE PART OF THE JOB IS SEEING THE SUCCESS OF OUR CLIENTS. WHEN WE START A CASE, SEE IT THROUGH, AND OUR CLIENTS GET THE JUSTICE THEY DESERVE, THERE’S NO FEELING QUITE LIKE IT.” As an intern, we know that Micah’s time with us is limited, but that doesn’t mean his effect here is limited, too. The team loves him, and he reciprocates that notion: “I love the staff here. Showing up every day to work with them is by far the highlight for me. The drive everyone shows for their work is inspiring. The biggest thing for me, though, is the care Paul and Kelly put into their cases. They care about the outcome for their clients.” We should probably give him a raise.
