Legal Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 San Jose, CA
“Bay Area Legal Aid has an incredibly kind and accepting atmosphere with lawyers who genuinely want to help people that are unable to afford legal aid. The firm taught me how to be compassionate, understanding, considerate, sympathetic, and hardworking. An important note is: simply because the law firm provides free legal service to low-income citizens does not mean the quality of the firm's legal aid is less than exemplary. ”
