    Family Law Attorney with Experience in Criminal Defense and Psychology

    United States

    I am a young associate attorney who works at a boutique family law firm in Los Angeles, California. Prior to obtaining my legal Pepperdine University School of Law,, I received my BA in psychology from the University of California Los Angeles. After working as a therapist for children with special needs, I then went to law school where I obtained great practical experience in the public sector. Over the summer of 2012, and again from January until May of 2013, I clerked for the Los Angeles Public Defender’s Office. I was afforded a great amount of autonomy, and was involved in numerous cases from intake through adjudication. My duties included conducting client intake interviews of defendants, researching various criminal legal issues, and drafting motions and memoranda on issues including death-qualification voir dire, the presumption of innocence in death penalty cases, competency, police corruption, medical marijuana, and Proposition 36. My experience at the LA Public Defender’s Office has provided me with hundreds of hours of practical legal writing and research experience which I look forward to utilizing in my career in conjunction with my specialized certificate in criminal law obtained from Pepperdine. Prior to working with the LA Public Defender’s Office, I served as an intern to the Honorable Judge Thurber, J.S.C., a Superior Court Judge in the family division in Bergen County, New Jersey. I gained substantial real-world experience in the litigation and post litigation processes, including mediation, oral advocacy, and legal research and writing. I conducted research on matters ranging from child support and child custody, to civil procedure, domestic violence, and mortgage. In addition to observing court proceedings, I analyzed case files, conducted legal research, and drafted decision memoranda to assist the Judge with preparation of orders. During the course of my law school experience at Pepperdine University, I also interned at René Cassin, a Jewish non-profit human rights agency, where I researched, analyzed data, and prepared a policy paper and curriculum to educate the public on modern slavery. In addition to conducting research on human rights, I drafted memoranda analyzing the European Court of Justice’s implementation of human rights laws. I then clerked at Mental Health Advocacy Services, where I analyzed, summarized, and prepared case files primarily in the area of special education law. This involved rigorous research, and drafting compliance complaints, preparing legal memoranda on IDEA, special education law, and ethical issues. Although I am happily employed as a practicing family law attorney, my desire for knowledge and teaching are never ending, and I would like to continue meeting and working with people whom I find inspiring and/or need my assistance. I believe my prior work experience, as well as my dedication, self-motivation, and professional yet outgoing personality will make me an asset to any project I am a part of.

    English-Croatian Translator, Writer, Administrative assistant, Ninja

    Croatia - Tests: 4

    I have had the pleasure of dealing with a lot of different people, a lot of different jobs and a lot of different situations in my short life. Everything did not go as smoothly as one would hope for but in the end every relationship I have with another has made me the person I am today. My excellent knowledge of English and the Internet have allowed me to reach very far at a young age. I had the possibility to learn and see things I normally could not and today I believe it has made me a better person. Ever since I was a kid I had respect for people that did the right thing and that lead to me growing up with the aspiration of becoming such a person. I have always wanted to protect the weak, fight for others' rights and strive to make the world a better place for everyone. Though I might be considered idealistic and naive, I have faced the harsh reality that not everything can be as we want it to be but I still do not weaver in my attitude. This way of thinking has brought me to where I am today - Law School. From the moment I enrolled into middle school, I knew I was going to enroll into Law School, which was my one and only choice when I was enrolling. Today I relish the opportunity to be able to explain to others the importance of law and how it impacts our daily lives. During the course of my studies I joined eSTUDENT, which made it possible to further develop my skills as a speaker, arbiter, leader, team player, lobbyist and most importantly as a person. We are, in the end, a sum of our experiences and I look forward to any new one.
