Making a Difference

“In my first year of law school… I mostly represented clients who had been wrongfully denied disability benefits by the Social Security Administration (SSA). I wrote briefs and represented the clients at hearings before Administrative Law judges. The SSA allowed non-lawyers to represent clients, and I was excited by the opportunity… I got to do ten hearings before I got admitted to the bar, and all my clients wound up getting benefits. It was a great experience.”
