Ida was instrumental in helping our firm develop and implement a mentorship program, which has now become integrated as part of our associate development process and has proven its value to the partnership.  Personally,  as the co-coordinator of the program I have found my involvement to be very rewarding.  We appreciate all of Ida's assistance in developing this important piece of our associate development program.
