Undergraduate College: Georgetown University
Ted is sitting exactly where he wants to be: in an associate’s chair in the real estate department at international legal heavyweight Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP. As a law student, he didn’t see that coming.
While at Cardozo, Ted had set his sights on entertainment law, having nurtured a lifelong interest in TV and entertainment. But after internships in film distribution, at a record label, and at an entertainment law firm, he realized the field wouldn’t offer the career he sought. “I was searching for flexibility and a wide range of opportunities,” he says, “and I knew that going into entertainment law would pigeonhole me.”Learn More
