Pine Tree has furthered my interests in the law . . . and I can't help but feel that my experiences this summer, while not quite as well-paid, have been more enriching than those of my investment banking cohorts. The feelings of helping a hardworking single mom who just needs one break to get back on track, or the vulnerable client who is manipulated by a predatory bank, or the refugee from a war torn country, is something that needs to be experienced to be understood and something to which I feel fortunate to have been exposed.

- Ryan, Summer Intern 2007
