MAZURKRAEMER Law Clerk Spotlight: Jared Quinn, MAZURKRAEMER Law Clerk

June 27, 2019

jaredquinnIMG_0424MAZURKRAEMER is proud to have Jared Quinn, as one of our law clerks.  I just recently had a long coffee talk with him.  He is bright and driven.  I cannot wait to see the business bankruptcy lawyer he will become.  Here is a spotlight on him:

A Western Pennsylvania native, and self-proclaimed “yinzer,” Jared Quinn is a typical “Pittsburgher”.  He graduated from Hempfield Area High School in Greensburg, PA, and from the University of Pittsburgh sum cum laude. During undergrad, he majored in business and minored in economics.

Recently, Jared graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law where he won the American Bankruptcy Institute Medal of Excellence, CALI Award in Advanced Bankruptcy, and the Gerald K. Gibson Bankruptcy Award.  He was also selected to be on the Pittsburgh Tax Review.  While serving as a Bluebook Editor, Jared’s student note, Congress Should Have an Interest in This Interest, was selected for publication in the review.

Throughout the competition, Jared and his team pleaded against other universities from across the world. His team placed 14thout of 357 teams in the general rounds and finished in the top 32 during the elimination rounds.

“It was one of the most rewarding and unique experiences I could have ever had in law school,” said Jared.

While a law student, Jared started working as a law clerk for the Chapter 13 bankruptcy trustee for the Western District of Pennsylvania, then interned for Deloitte’s international tax department, followed by an externship with Honorable Chief Judge Böhm of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.  He subsequently worked as a law clerk for Goldberg Persky and White.

Jared has enjoyed learning about and practicing business and bankruptcy law. Jared credits his uncle, bankruptcy attorney Greg Dunn, for inspiring him to work in business and bankruptcy law.

Jared is now studying for the New York Bar Exam.  He says that every recent law school graduate needs at least one hobby to keep his or her mind off of the looming Bar Exam.  Jared loves to cook and bake. Other than his favorite dessert, chocolate chip cookies, he can prepare cheesecakes and an assortment of other baked goods. Jared also likes to exercise, and he plays softball for the Pitt Law softball team in the ACBA league, the 2018 Champions. Watch out for him on the field now, and in the courtroom soon enough!
