Jan. 3 – Roll Call
Eric Edwards, a partner at Crowell & Moring, got his start in Washington by going beyond his job description while he interned for the late Sen. Paul Simon, D-Ill., during his last year at John Marshall Law School in Chicago.
“He hired me in the Chicago office to do casework. I ended up being his driver part time while I was also doing casework during the day because his full-time driver became ill,” Edwards said. “He asked me, after I passed the bar, what I would I like do, and I said I would like to come out to D.C. and do policy work. I started as a legislative correspondent in the Senate.”
