Growing up, I was convinced that I would never be an attorney, let alone see myself working with Legal Aid.  My impression of attorneys was based on what I saw in popular media, where attorneys are often portrayed as brash, loud-mouthed, and generally unscrupulous characters.  As a reserved, quiet kid trying his best to be a good person, it was unimaginable that I would ever be involved in such an immoral line of work.

Naturally, life had different ideas and after college I found myself working as a paralegal.  To my relief, however, my time as a paralegal had shown me that the popular media image of attorneys was greatly exaggerated.  I learned just how valuable legal representation was every time I saw the relief and appreciation on a client’s face after they were helped by the firm’s attorneys. Continue reading…

The fellowship, funded by a $100,000 commitment by Paul Padda Law, provides critical assistance to the thousands of low income and vulnerable clients who are assisted by Legal Aid Center each year. The Community Justice fellowship is designed to give new attorneys valuable legal training and the opportunity to gain practical experience in the areas of practice handled by Legal Aid Center. The purpose of the fellowship is not only to assist with the great unmet legal need at Legal Aid Center, but to expose the fellow to the workings of a public interest law practice.
