 Summer 2018 Interns

Isidora Echeverria, a Santiago, Chile native, is a senior studying Political Science and Public Policy at Hunter College. After immigrating to the United States as a toddler and growing up in Long Island, she has developed a passion for immigrant rights and public service. As a student at Hunter, Ms. Echeverria has served as a prominent voice for undocumented “Dreamers” on campus and beyond. She holds a 3.75 GPA and will graduate in fall 2018. She is looking forward to a career serving the public after attending law school in the near future.

“Interning at Wolf Haldenstein this summer has been a remarkable learning experience. By working with passionate attorneys and inspiring interns on a daily basis, Wolf Haldenstein has given me the opportunity to experience what it is like to work at a leading law firm. Thanks to the invaluable mentorship from Wolf Haldenstein, I will take the skills I’ve learned with me into law school and throughout my career.”

 

 

Jordan Michel emigrated from Jamaica to the US at 13 years old. Having discovered a passion for community service and activism at a young age, he volunteered with The Big Brothers & Big Sisters of America and Habitat for Humanity, and joined his High School Debate Team and the US Navy Sea Cadets. Jordan is driven by an irresistible urge to help others in any way he can; to that end, he currently serves as an elected member of his local Democratic Committee and Board of Education where he focuses on outreach and immigrant rights concerns. Jordan is a senior at Hunter College pursuing a Bachelor’s in Sociology with Minors in Political Science and Linguistic Anthropology and plans to attend law school in 2019 to study Public Policy, Immigration, and Human Rights Law.

“My summer at Wolf Haldenstein provided me the opportunity to learn the daily workings of a leading plaintiffs’ firm and work with highly experienced attorneys. I have developed a deeper appreciation for the painstaking work attorneys put into delivering results for clients, and the positive, progressive, and far-reaching impacts those results can have on the greater good.”

 

Katie DiMauro, an Armonk, N.Y. native, is a senior at the American University in Washington, DC. Ms. DiMauro is majoring in Law & Society in the School of Public Affairs and is a member of the pre-law fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta. After finishing her undergraduate degree, Katie wishes to continue pursuing a career in law, either as a paralegal or lawyer. In her free time, Katie can be seen exploring areas of D.C. with her camera in hand to document her time in the nation’s capital.

“My time at Wolf Haldenstein has helped me further my interest and knowledge of the legal field. Wolf Haldenstein taught me skills on how to conduct proper legal research and read different types of legal documents. After completing this internship with Wolf Haldenstein last year, I saw my grades and grasp on legal information improve. Being able to work with, and learn from, not only talented staff but my fellow interns has made both of my summers at Wolf Haldenstein enjoyable and memorable.”
