In a recent article by the Daily Business Review, Brooke Ehrlich shares her story on how she made partner. Brooke was elected partner in the Firm’s Labor and Employment Division in 2019.
“Be the type of attorney who is available and helpful, you’ll become an attorney that the partners cannot do without,” advised Brooke. “Those who are willing to work hard, take personal responsibility, follow through, and be responsive to clients will set themselves apart as partner material,” she added.
Like many, Brooke, adjusted many aspects of her practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. “From becoming an expert on [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance for employers and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to practicing law from home with two small children attending virtual school, my daily routine was turned on its head. The only option is to adjust and adapt to the circumstances.”
Brooke focuses her practice on labor and employment litigation, commercial litigation, and appellate matters. She regularly represents public and private entities in discrimination charges pursuant to state and federal anti-discrimination and wage and hour laws. She also advises clients on employee discipline, retention and termination, employment manuals and policies, and contract interpretation.
