Among other things, he shares his practical advice for young people who want their careers to make an impact:
Network constantly in all directions – up, down, sideways, in and out. And find a way to help someone else in some small way, every day.
Congratulations to AABANY’s very own Jean Lee for being featured as a Catalyst Spotlight on the Council of Urban Professionals (CUP) website!
Jean served as AABANY President from 2012-2013 and currently sits on the AABANY Board of Directors.
CUP interviewed Jean and asked her about the challenges she has faced in this profession, proudest achievements, and leaders that she looks up to.
“What is your proudest achievement? My proudest professional achievement is in two parts: (i) being a lawyer for JPMorgan Chase & Co.; and (ii) winning several Daubert motions against very senior partners when I was a mid-level associate. They are my proudest moments because it was so unexpected and unlikely.”
Jean also credits much of her success to having mentors in her. Seeing the value and benefits of mentorship, she currently mentors students and young lawyers.
