Trust is integral when it comes to mediation, often being noted as a key ingredient to negotiation success. Erik Vollenweider joins Rebecca Wisbar to talk about trust in another aspect of the legal life: mentorship. Erik has made the transition from Associate to Partner at Lobman Carnahan in New Orleans. Erik discusses how to communicate with less experienced associates as well as how more seasoned attorneys can benefit from the new  perspective and energy the associates bring to the firm.  

Link to the article in The Advocate mentioned by Rebecca and Erik about potential jurors being collected off the streets of Downtown Baton Rouge.
