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.
