Meet the Mentors
“One of the things that sets our firm apart is the emphasis on mentoring and on training. I’ve been with the firm my entire career and I’ve certainly been a beneficiary of that mentoring and training.”
Read Mark Selwyn’s biography.
“I try to use the network I’ve built to help younger lawyers find opportunities. At a firm like WilmerHale, you have so many opportunities to create networks and find colleagues who can walk with you throughout your career.”
Read Kevin Prussia's biography.
“Mentorship is the most rewarding part of my job. In the same way that partners created opportunities for me, I look for opportunities for my team members. I also make diversity and inclusiveness part of the conversation and look to bring attorneys together to find peers and mentors for support. And I am always more than willing to share my moments of self-doubt to let junior attorneys know that such thoughts are normal yet not worthy of validation.”
Read Nora Passamaneck’s biography.
“The mentoring I received at the firm made a huge difference for me, and I take my own role as a mentor very seriously. I also encourage other senior lawyers to take on mentoring relationships and try to foster a sense of community at the firm through my work with the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team.”
Read Dino Wu's biography.
“We strive at WilmerHale to give younger lawyers the same opportunities, in terms of training and learning, that we who have been here for a long time had ourselves ... That includes an effort to teach people how to do it right and to teach people why excellence is important.”
Read Roger Witten’s biography.
“I always appreciate opportunities to mentor newer lawyers, in part because I learn so much in the process. Working with associates reminds me of the importance of giving the reins to others so they have room to take risks and learn, and also of the importance of listening and being generous with my knowledge.”
Read Cynthia Mazareas' biography.
“I’m honored that people want my advice. I give it freely ... I’ve done a lot, and if I can share that with others while listening to what they would really like to achieve in their careers and in their lives, that’s great.”
