Law clerks play a key role within our organization.

They will return to law school as 3Ls with a stronger professional network, a cache of practical knowledge, and a solid foundation in legal principles and courtroom dynamics.

The guidance of seasoned attorneys and exposure to diverse legal matters will only benefit their professional growth. We hope their time at Gausnell, O’Keefe & Thomas will be immensely rewarding.

We are thrilled to welcome these aspiring professionals who are taking the next step in their legal careers.

Welcome, Tiwa and Patrick!
