Summary of Internship

Being an intern at the law office of Marcia S. Kasdan gave me the unique opportunity to experience what working at a professional law firm truly means. The office was welcoming and comfortable; however, being a part of an Immigration team is not easy. Some of my tasks included answering phone calls and connecting them to their respective attorney; filing cases; setting appointments, opening new cases and closing out old ones that have been already settled; creating and mailing out payments; reviewing case files; and inputting case history and progress into the firms database. I was always given something to accomplish at the law firm and treated just like a worker. My attendance and contributions were always welcome and that made me want to work even harder. I was given an unbelievable education experience on what a true legal working environment has to offer and I enjoyed every minute of it. I will forever be thankful.
