Getting paralegal job despite no legal experience
"Strong Law Firm Growth Continuing"

"Iraq Marines thank law firm in person"

This is a remarkable story about a project organized by legal staff members:

"Marine Lance Cpl. Brenton Hutson of Wheat Ridge carried a 12-by-8-inch American flag through much of his tour of duty in Iraq.

"On Friday, Hutson and another Marine visited the downtown Denver offices of Holland & Hart to thank the law firm's staff for sending the flag with a note.

"'Little things like this give us motivation to go out there every day. You went to all this trouble and you didn't have to,' said Hutson, 21. 'We just wanted to say thanks.'

"Hutson and Lance Cpl. Ted Dabrowski, 23, of Iowa, were greeted warmly by about 30 Holland & Hart employees on Friday. They recently returned from Iraq to Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora.

"Holland & Hart has sent about 6,000 flags to soldiers in Iraq since 2003.

"'We've received e-mails over the years but to have these two Marines drop by is just overwhelming. It has been an extremely rewarding project,' said paralegal Marcy Weaver.

"She organized the Holland & Hart Foundation project with intellectual property specialist Michele Clark."
