Question 2

How are you currently involved with the practice area?

After law school, I continued to volunteer in the Children’s Rights Clinic, this time as a volunteer attorney in the General Advocacy division. There I assisted indigent clients in matters involving guardianships and adoptions. I continue practice in these areas whenever time permits. I have also presented on the topic of LGBT International Adoption to groups of practitioners from around the country.
