We are excited to announce the arrival of our Summer Associates, Elliot Min from the University of Washington, Katherine Roberts from Seattle University, and Alexandra Valenti, a Gregoire Fellow from the University of Washington who will be joining us for the summer months.
Elliot Min is a 2L student from the University of Washington. He was born in Baltimore but moved to Seattle during middle school. After graduating from Shorewood high school, he continued his academic journey by attending the University of Washington for his undergraduate degree. Elliot worked in legal support before attending law school. He coupled his 1L summer associate role with volunteer work at the WSBA. He is eager to get a variety of projects across our practice areas during his time at OMW and to continue to hone his legal research, case evaluation, and writing skills. In his free time, Elliot enjoys playing golf and the guitar. He also loves going to Mariner and Trailblazer games.
Katherine Robertson is a 2L student from Seattle University. She was born and raised in Bellevue but has lived in Seattle for the last two years. Katherine’s experience in the legal and medical industries includes working with patients and clients with diverse backgrounds. She is passionate about providing the personalized client care that OMW is known for during her summer with us. Her focus this summer is to further develop a broad range of skills, with some interest in municipal law. Katherine lives with her two cats, Salem and Pippin, and loves spending her downtime with them while she crochets, bakes something new, or digs into a novel. As a scuba diver and skier, she enjoys living near both the water and the mountains. She’s also a big lover of travelling and completed two solo backpacking trips abroad this past year.
Alexandra Valenti is a Gregoire Fellow from the University of Washington. Originally from Seattle and is a husky fan through and through. Before attending law school, Alexandra worked as an attorney recruiter at a law firm. She volunteers as a Committee Member on Washington's Local Indian Child Welfare Committee and is President of the Native American Law Student Association at UW Law.

She also enjoys reading and listening to investigative podcasts in her free time.The Gregoire Fellows Program, named in honor of former Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire, recognizes students for their academic and professional achievements, unique perspectives, and leadership potential to diversify the legal profession and law schools in Washington. Fellows spend the summer following their first year gaining invaluable legal experience.
We are excited to have these students and look forward to their unique perspectives and talents this summer.
