Firm Counsel Brigette N. Eagan, Esq. has recently had her OpEd entitled, "How to be a rainmaker...by a lawyer who is not one" published in ROI-NJ. Snippet below:
"To all of my junior colleagues: This article is for you. Invest in your career. This not only means caring about your work, caring about being a great attorney and meeting your billables. It also means building relationships that develop as your career develops. How did I miss this? The truth is, years later, I realize that I did not put myself out there consistently enough to try. I did not make the investment in my own career. I thought clients would flock to me because of my skills. The reality is, there are many skilled attorneys out there. Skill is imperative, but it is not enough in today’s competitive environment. Build your professional network now. It will give you that platform for success!"
