Let me start by saying that when I received this chance to participate and interact with another lawyer, I was elated. On January 17, 2011, I had the honor of meeting Mayowa Odusanya, a Family Law Attorney in Miami, Florida.

When I arrived at Mr. Odusanya’s office, he decided that instead of starting the day in his office, we should get to know a little bit about each other. We headed out to a cafe near his office where many questions were exchanged; varying from what my motivation in high school is to whether he believes that it is all worth it at the end.

After our discussion ended, we took a drive to an actual law school: Florida International University College of Law. Because I had never seen one before, I could not stop smiling. While in the building, Mr. Odusanya told me about everything he had to do in order to accomplish his goals in law school. He also gave me a personal tour of the different auditorium and courtrooms. I also had the pleasure of meeting a good friend of Mr. Odusanya who told me about the different programs their law school had to offer.

One thing that I can say about lawyers to the rescue is that they provide students with excellent opportunities to learn new things. On the day of December 31st I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Antonio Revilla, a lawyer that works in the field of immigration and his fellow workers. I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences of my life.

During the first five minutes after meeting Mr. Revilla, I had already learned new things. He explained to me how things “operate” in the field immigration and he also told me how he felt when he helped a client. Later on I had the opportunity to visit an actual courthouse with Juliana whom like everyone else working there were one of the most amiable person I have ever met.

During the time I was there, I was able to observe the steps taken in submitting documents and receipts. I also saw an actual judge. Due to the fact that I had never seen one before, it was pretty awesome. After leaving the courthouse, we returned to Mr. Revilla’s firm and ate pizza with everyone that was so good that I only could eat one. Soon after, I began to read about a court case titled “Reason to Believe”. Sadly as I finished reading, it was time for me to go. Some may have thought it was a slow day but for me it was a great experience. Thank you so much Lawyers to the Rescue and Mr. Revilla for the great opportunity.
