Hogan & Hartson -- Job Inquiry -- 1987

March 2, 1987
3801 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Apartment 136
Washington, DC  20008

Bob Glen Odle, Esq.
Administrative Partner
Hogan & Hartson
815 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Washington, D  20006

Dear Mr. Odle:

I am eager to be considered for an entry level associate position with the firm of Hogan & Hartson and submit for your consideration a resume together with two recommendations and a writing sample.

I have been employed since September 1985 as a temporary paralegal in the Computer Applications Department under the supervision of Ms. Sheryl Ferguson.  Attorneys with whom I have worked include Ms. Catherine J. Lacroix and, most recently, Ms. Maree Sneed.

Since my primary aim is to acquire experience in the law and not simply pecuniary gain, I am willing to accept a position at a salary considerably below that offered to entry level associates.  Further, should the firm decide to make an offer of employment, I am willing to postpone my employment for a generously-reasonable period until such time that the Computer Applications Department is able to accommodate the loss of my services.

Thank you very much of your consideration.

Sincerely yours,

Gary Freedman

I never solicited attorney employment at Akin Gump. Upon my being hired in June 1988 at Akin Gump I was advised by then Legal Assistant Administrator Margarita Babb never to do that.
