"As a Student at SV and then a part time staff member I want to express the absolute gratitude I have for everyone at the Firm for everything I've learned over the last 5 years. Not only will I be starting law school with some very valuable technical skills, but I will go into this profession having the utmost respect and appreciation for every person involved in the legal process - especially support staff. Everyone was so patient with me and my questions when teaching me something new and trusted me with tasks that I probably wouldn't have experienced until I began my career. Not to mention that they are all good people that made coming to work much more enjoyable! I'm also very thankful for time that the lawyers took out of their busy days to share personal stories and advice with me about their law school and career journeys."
“I have been with SV Law for three years. Since the day I started I have felt that the lawyers and staff have welcomed me with open arms and have been an extended family to me. I have made many friends here. The firm has a very active social committee, which I am happy to be a part of, not to mention the many other fun activities that the firm provides. The firm also provides opportunity for me to continue with education and is very supportive. I feel very much appreciated here and enjoy coming into the office every day.”
Lisa P. Law Clerk (Corporate Law)
“I started with SV Law as a co-op student looking for work experience to graduate from the Office Administration – Legal program. After completing three weeks of co-op I decided to accept the offer of employment working out of the Fergus office as an assistant in corporate law. Let’s fast forward to a little over a year later and it has been the most enriching experience. The office is a great place for enthusiastic individuals to apply their skills and knowledge they posses and let their talent prosper in a positive, fun, hardworking environment. There are opportunities daily to advance your knowledge and experience, and staff around you are always willing to lend a helping hand or for you to pick their knowledgeable brains. The office is not only a great spot to apply your skills, but a fun place where we have an active social committee that plans fun out of office or in office activities that remind you that your hard work is appreciated and that we are one great big family. I am extremely grateful to work for this amazing office, and I look forward to many more years with SV Law!!”
