About her Pro Bono Service To LCCR
Suzette began working with the Second Chance Legal Clinic in 2012, and from the start has been undaunted by the wide variety of issues she has confronted. Her diligence has delivered fast results for clients facing severe employment barriers—in particular, Suzette has helped two clients successfully clean their records and re-enter the work force with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence.
In addition to her work with the LCCR, Suzette’s pro bono practice involves working with law students to provide legal services to San Francisco’s homeless population and working with local organizations to provide legal services to veterans seeking VA benefits.
