Welcome to the Dykema Alumni Network
Whether you’ve moved on in your legal career, retired, or switched paths entirely, we value the impact you've made on Dykema and hope to stay connected.
Why Stay Connected?
One of the best pieces of advice I’ve received during my career came from a former Dykema partner when I was a first or second-year associate at the firm. He told me that the young lawyers who stand out are those who break free of a task master mentality, simply looking to cross things off a to-do list. He said I should be focusing on the big picture—taking ownership of my matters and showing leadership. I took that advice to heart, and now remind my own team of the importance of understanding from the outset what a good outcome will look like, why we care, and how we’re going to get there as efficiently as possible.
