Today, two new interns came into our office, Craig Moncreif and Jeremy Dover. They are both attending college at University of Miami. Craig Moncreif is on his 2nd year and Jeremy Dover on his 3rd. They will both be a part of the Lawyers to the Rescue and will be attending some of the events at the Camillus House. Along with them, I am one of the youngest people taking part in Lawyers to the Rescue. I am looking forward to attending the Lawyers to the Rescue events as well, and I am beginning to understand how important it is to give back to the community and take part in charity work. I see first-hand an attorney and staff that is already busy at work and handling all types of legal cases, however, not satisfied solely by monetary gains, they are contributing to society by helping those less fortunate.

I look forward to helping out at charity events and clinics and I feel that not only will I gain priceless experience, but also I will be able to obtain community service hours, which is a huge plus for me as I'm going into high school starting in August. I believe Lawyers to the Rescue is doing great things and this is amazing opportunity not only for me, but also for those that would not have this help otherwise.
