Flaster Greenberg is pleased to welcome Juliet Patterson as a summer associate in our Cherry Hill, NJ and Philadelphia, PA offices for a 7-week internship and mentor program that will offer her a tangible legal experience in a variety of departments at the firm.
Patterson, a Philadelphia Diversity Law Group (PDLG) fellow and first-year law student at the University of Pennsylvania, will work with shareholders and associates in the corporate and business law, intellectual property, bankruptcy, labor and employment, insurance counseling and recovery, litigation, and cybersecurity and data privacy departments.
She will receive direct exposure to the legal process and attend seminars, luncheons, and other outings to offer her informal settings to further develop professional and personal ties to the firm and our attorneys.
“The firm’s selection committee interviewed many candidates for this opening, but Juliet impressed us with both her confidence and credentials,” said Mariel Giletto, chair of Flaster Greenberg’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.
Summer Associate Juliet Patterson is a 2025 J.D. candidate at University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School and earned her bachelor’s degree from University of Florida in business administration. Patterson’s law school activities include serving as a 1L board member for Latinx American Law Students Association, American Constitution Society, First Generation Professionals, and Penn Law Lambda. Through this board work, she advocates and fosters a sense of community for Latinx-identifying students, LGBTQ students, and their allies by organizing academic and professional programming and social, cultural, and service events.
Patterson has also performed Pro Bono work with If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice, a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the law and policy landscape, so all people have the power to define, create, and sustain their families, and to actualize sexual and reproductive wellbeing on their own terms.
Patterson seeks to become a corporate transactional lawyer with a specialization in East Asia.
The mission of Flaster Greenberg’s Mentor Program is to provide summer associates with an opportunity to gain real-world experience working with the firm’s attorneys, staff, and clients, and to get a feel for what it is like as a first-year associate at Flaster Greenberg.
The PDLG Fellows Program provides diverse students completing their first year of law school with the opportunity to be considered for summer law jobs with PDLG members. This program is open to diverse law students - those who have overcome significant and uncommon obstacles in the pursuit of a legal career, come from a disadvantaged background or come from a background, or are part of a group that is underrepresented in the Philadelphia legal community. After going through a rigorous application and interview process, twelve students work as summer associates/clerks at twelve PDLG employers.
