Glen Burnie, MD (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
The Law Office of Garland C. Hall, LLC is a Maryland divorce and family law firm located in the town of Glen Burnie. The firm is proud to announce the new addition to their legal team, attorney Kelley Spigel.
Kelley Spigel is a native of Baltimore County, Maryland. She attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts where she earned her bachelor of science degree in criminal justice. From there, she went on to earn her juris doctorate degree from the University of Baltimore, School of Law in Baltimore, Maryland.
While attending law school, attorney Spigel was a Rule 16 student attorney at the University’s Family Law Clinic. The University of Baltimore’s Family Law Clinic is comprised of student attorneys, otherwise law students who are licensed to practice under supervising attorneys, family law clinic professors, and family law clinic staff.
The students in the family law clinic go to court and do more than just observe, for they attend weekly three hour seminars that cover various critical topics such as interviewing, counseling and trial advocacy. Most importantly, under the supervision of the clinic’s faculty, they represent low-income clients who are seeking child custody, child custody, adoption, divorce, and civil remedies in domestic violence cases. The family law clinic also works towards systematic reform that aims at increasing access to justice in the field of family law.
The family law clinic is an experience that is like no other in law school. No matter how many mock trials a law student does, there is nothing like listening to the heartbreak of a real client’s story. These are the types of experiences that first-time lawyers obtain early on while in the trenches. The family law clinic gives students these experiences early on while still in school, and this real-life experience prepares them for practice in a way that no class ever can. Additionally, students are able to give their legal advice to clients who otherwise couldn’t afford legal representation.
In addition to being involved in the university’s Family Law Clinic, attorney Spigel has had numerous internships all throughout college and law school where she focused on family and criminal law. Today, attorney Spigel is licensed to practice law in the state of Maryland where she primarily focuses her efforts on family and criminal law cases.
The Law Office of Garland C. Hall, LLC is proud that attorney Spigel has joined their legal team, and they are confident that she will be a welcome addition to their legal practice. The firm is located in Glen Burnie and handles all aspects of divorce and family law including but not limited to prenuptial ad postnuptial agreements, annulments, divorce, child custody, visitation and support, adoption, domestic violence and adoption.
