On October 16, Law.com published an article as part of its “How I Made Partner” series highlighting Partner Jonathan Hughley’s career success and his pathway to partnership at Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP.

Hughley, who was elected to Marshall Gerstein’s partnership in 2019, taking effect January 1, 2020, explains in the article that he believes he was selected for partnership because “partners recognized my ‘no-excuses, it’ll get done’ work ethic and commitment to the firm while seeing that I truly enjoy working with clients in technical areas that I find exciting.”

When asked how he feels about his career now that he has made partner, Hughley said, “While I am pleased to have crossed this career milestone, I recognize that there is much more work to be done, and as such, I’ve undergone a shift of my focus and priorities. My internal drive is pushing me to approach marketing and business development head-on so that I can establish and manage lasting client relationships for the Firm. I also recognize that becoming a partner means that I have a responsibility for looking to the next generation of Associates and aspiring attorneys to provide them with guidance on how to best position themselves for success in the legal field.”
