Clark Hill Attorney Vanessa Kelly Named in The New Jersey 2021 Legal Awards
Clark Hill attorney Vanessa Kelly was recently named in The New Jersey 2021 Legal Awards in the Mentor of the Year category.

It does not prepare you for the complexities of client relationships or providing advice to real problems. I remember the shock that I first experienced when a client’s concern did not have a straightforward answer and there was no case law answer. That is where the art of lawyering comes in—reasoning a way forward with the least amount of risk to the client. Less experienced attorneys learn this “art” through coaching, practice, feedback and by observing more seasoned colleagues.”
