While I was in law school, I had the opportunity to hire some young adults with developmental disabilities in the restaurant that I co-owned. The experience changed my life and started me on a 20+ year career advocating for the rights of persons with disabilities, especially in employment.
I think this experience helps me understand what my clients are going through when they are trying to plan for the future of their family member with a disability.
