Being an intern at the law office of Dario, Yacker, Suarez, & Albert gave me the unique opportunity to see the various aspects of what being a legal professional truly means. While within the comforting and welcoming environment of the office, some of my tasks included filling thousands of medical records, attorney claims, affidavits and citations; answering the phone and connecting clients to their respective attorney; faxing important legal documents to opposing counsels or court houses; questioning clients in order for their claim to be more easily understood; setting up appointments, opening new cases and closing out old ones that have previously been settled; and imputing case history and progress into the firms database. I was able to witness cases ranging from criminal acts of assault, drug possession, grand theft auto, and burglary to civil law suits on the basis of personal injury, workers compensation, as well as divorce settlement hearings and simple municipal violations. I was always thrust right into the heat of the moment and never pushed to the back seat.
