Summary of Internship

Being an intern at The Law Office of Marcia S. Kasdan gave me the opportunity to experience how working at a professional law firm felt like. At first, I was nervous and anxious about becoming part of a workforce but those feelings were shaken off quickly. Everyone at the office is like a family, always looking out for one another. I could always count on my co-workers because they would drop everything they were doing to assist me. The office was welcoming and comfortable; however, being part of immigration is a serious matter. Some of my tasks at the office include setting appointments; and connecting these appointments to their paralegals or attorney. Additionally, I file cases; create and mail out payments; and review case files. I was always given something to accomplish at the law firm and treated just like a family member. I will always be thankful for the knowledge; such as the people skills that my mentor Marcia Kasdan has instilled in me. I am forever thankful for the valuable educational experience I received.
