“I’ve been with Obermayer since I was a Summer Associate. I have always appreciated Obermayer’s camaraderie and the sense that we really are a family. That cultural perspective does not detract from our work; it enhances it. We deliberately give our attorneys real legal experience years before many other firms might, and we support them as they build their own practices. There’s no other firm at which I would rather be.”

- Mathieu J. Shapiro, Managing Partner

“I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given at Obermayer, but even more grateful for the friendship and support over the years. I started my legal career at Obermayer 26 years ago and it doesn’t feel that long because I enjoy coming to work every day.”

- Lucille Conte, Legal Assistant.

“I came to Obermayer not knowing much about the firm but I had been an environmental paralegal at an in-house law firm and wanted to make a change and experience working for a larger firm to challenge and grow my legal strength. Seventeen years later I am still here at Obermayer and still continuing to learn and grow.”

- Kenneth Norton, Paralegal
