CMM was honored to host two ambitious students from Brentwood High School for the opportunity to shadow some of our professionals. Yessica and Marilyn, who plan to pursue legal careers, received an inside look from our attorneys at life as a lawyer and received advice for college, law school, and beyond. The students met one-on-one with many members of our team and enjoyed a group lunch where topics included the importance of diversity in law and keeping an open mind when making career decisions. By participating in community programs such as Brentwood’s Job Shadow Day as well as spearheading our own programs to engage young people on Long Island, CMM is working to guide students on their career journeys and achieve diversity in the legal profession.

Let us honor those who unnecessarily died in these attacks by focusing on the greatness that unites us as Americans. Remember the innocent men and women who were murdered, and the brave firefighters and police who risked and gave their lives to try and help save others. Let us remember that every day it is up to us to help make this world a better and more peaceful place before it’s too late.” ... See MoreSee Less
