“I was privileged to work at Dade Legal Aid as a 2015 UM Legal Corps Fellow. I recognized that the fellowship would provide me with a unique opportunity to not only serve the community but also develop crucial lawyer and networking skills. The attorneys at Dade Legal Aid do exactly what they say: “represent families living in poverty with nowhere else to turn for legal services” … and they do so with great empathy. I always believed that it takes very special people to display such genuine empathy for the most vulnerable of our community. These attorneys not only perform an extraordinary job representing clients, they are also active leaders in the community. I am very humbled to learn from some of the best lawyers in Miami at Dade Legal Aid, while doing work that I love,” Francesse Lucius, Esquire
