One of the 12 lawyers at Pursley Friese Togrimson nominated partner Stephanie Friese for the “Best Mentor” recognition based on this lawyer’s own experience. The lawyer recalled starting as a summer assistant at the firm, when Friese gradually increased the complexity of projects and went over corrections to the work.

“Stephanie continues to take time out of her day and schedule to help her employees understand the why behind any critique she offers,” wrote the lawyer, who went to law school and is now a lawyer at the firm. “Stephanie is a great mentor because she believes in her team’s potential. From the very start of my legal career Stephanie has entrusted important assignments and client contact to me, always at a level appropriate to my knowledge at the time. Having someone believe in me in that manner continues to give me confidence in my abilities.”

Friese told the Daily Report for an article on training the next generation of lawyers that they needed time to develop business. “We need to create a space so younger attorneys can build a book of business,” said Friese, managing partner of the commercial real estate law firm.
