Insights: News Yendelela Neely Holston Interviewed in Furman News re: Talent, Tenacity and Timing Lead to Connection Between Trustee and Job-Seeking Senior
As a partner and chief diversity and inclusion officer of a law firm with clients worldwide, Yendelela Neely Holston ’03 gets hundreds of emails a day. But when one arrives from a furman.edu address, it stands out from the pile.
“I have a special place in my heart for students who have the courage to reach out,” says Holston from her office at the Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton law firm in Atlanta. “I never reached out to alums as a student; I always thought it was a bother. But I admire people who do, and I want to encourage that type of behavior as a life skill.”
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
