IMC’s Brendan Brown Interns at the Law Offices of Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster
IMC major Brendan Brown, ’16, recently completed a summer internship at the law offices of Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster. This full-service firm offers clients effective, high-quality legal services for matters involving personal injury, criminal defense, family law, business, real estate, estate planning and probate law. The firm is headquartered in Newburgh, New York, and the firm also has a satellite office in Middletown, New York. During his time with the company, Brendan was fortunate enough to work under the direct supervision of partner, Mr. John Ingrassia.
While at the firm, Brendan developed his critical thinking and research skills. He assisted in client meetings, document gathering and case preparation for litigation. Brendan also accompanied Mr. Ingrassia to court on a variety of matters, including arraignments, sentence proceedings and suppression hearings in criminal matters. He frequently appeared in front of the 9th Judicial District more particularly, Orange County Supreme Court and Family Court. It is here, where he was introduced to several judges, including the Honorable Robert H. Freeehill and the Honorable Lori Currier-Woods.
Impressed by Brendan’s ambition and initial introduction that summer, they each offered him the unique opportunity to observe trials from the bench and later discuss those proceedings in their chambers. He was granted clearance into several restricted areas and truly received a holistic picture of the legal profession.
When reflecting on his experience Brendan said: “I learned invaluable information during my time at Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster. At the start of my internship, I thought IMC and law were two unrelated fields, but over time I began to see the integral role marketing plays in a lawyer’s success. I look forward to attending law school next year knowing that I will continue to use my marketing background.”
