It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for Herb Tamres' legal, editing, and writing skills, as well as his teaching skills. In my final year in law school, I worked under Herb's supervision in the General Counsel's Office of a major firm. Herb was a terrific supervisor and mentor. He gave myself and my colleagues great advice about how to improve our writing and how to better use caselaw to support our reasoning. Herb was incredibly patient with us as we climbed up the learning curve, and he made sure we were appropriately challenged in the process. Herb was always willing to listen to us, and to discuss any difficulties we were having with particular assignments. He also exhibited a sincere interest in us as people, which I believe is another attribute that made him a superb teacher.
I have been a lawyer for over 20 years now, and currently work in the New York City Law Department. I am certain that working for Herb made me a better writer -- and a better lawyer -- than I would otherwise have been. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me during the work day at 212-356-2433.
