Legal Work
at TRE Legal Practice


At TRE Legal, a small firm specializing in disability discrimination law, I work on legal research and writing along with general paralegal support. I have been involved in writing Complaints, assisting with fee petitions after a settlement, researching legal precedent, and more.

I received my JD from UC Hastings (‘09) alongside Timothy Elder, the founder of the TRE Legal Practice, but I chose to pursue a PhD instead of working as a lawyer. Recently, I’ve begin working for Tim as a paralegal/legal intern because I support the work he does and because I am considering taking the bar and practicing myself, even if only as a sideline to my academic work. TRE Legal is a civil rights law firm fighting discrimination and specializing in the rights of the blind and other disabled people to access employment, education, government programs, public accommodations, accessible technology and all other aspects of society. Some of TRE Legal’s work includes:
