My name is Hannah Diliddo, and currently I am a senior at Florida Atlantic University. I am majoring in Criminal Justice and Criminology, and I am minoring in Anthropology. Once I graduate, I plan to study law at Nova Southeastern University.
While interning, I have found joy in several different projects and informative tasks. I enjoy appearing for virtual court hearings, meeting clients for strategy sessions, organizing case files, learning how to write notices and subpoenas for depositions, and gaining useful knowledge from executing FAQs and Blogs. In addition, Rossen Law Firm works diligently to assist their clients and find the best solution for their cases. I respect and appreciate their teamwork and commitment, and while working alongside them, I am gaining all the more experience that is needed.
When I am not interning, I am working on the weekends, and studying for my classes during the weekdays. When I have spare time, I love to play video games, watch movies and shows, go jogging, and I take pleasure in reading fantasy/adventure novels with some cookies and tea. Also with my love for Japanese culture, I occasionally find time to train Ju-Jitsu at the dojo.
My name is Jeremy Jacobs and I am a senior in the Integrated Business program at University of Central Florida. I hope to attend law school upon graduation.
I enjoy interning at Rossen Law Firm because I get first hand experience in the working environment. My favorite parts have to be attending zoom court sessions as well as sitting in on depositions. The weekly projects help me become more knowledgeable in this field of law. It is such an enjoyable environment to be a part of.
When I am not working for Rossen Law Firm, I am usually playing or watching sports. My favorite sport to play is basketball. I love watching any sport with my favorite sport being MMA. I also love to spend time with my friends and family.
My name is Carolina Sanchez-Torres and I’m a senior at American Heritage School in Plantation. In college, I plan on majoring in International Relations with a minor in Legal Philosophy on a Pre-Law track. After obtaining my bachelor’s degree, I then plan to enroll in law school to practice International Criminal Law in the future.
I love how much I’ve learned from interning at Rossen Law, most specifically the real life experience I’ve gotten outside of the classroom. All the attorneys are always open to answering questions and involving us in their cases.
When I’m not interning at the firm during the summer, you can either catch me at a local coffee shop, bookstore or mock trial practice. During the year I’m probably traveling with my school’s Model UN team and stressing over school work. I run my local chapter of the Junior State of America where I organize service projects to amplify teen voices in democracy. On the rare occasion that I have free time, I love to indulge in a good book or watch Legally Blonde for the 15th time.
My name is Emily Jabas, I am a Junior at Florida International University (FIU). I am pursuing my Bachelors in Criminal Justice with plans to minor in Political Science. Once I graduate, I want to attend law school and become an attorney.
I love how Adam, Manny, and David are always open to answer our questions and get us involved with what they are doing. Within the first week of being with the team I was sitting in virtual courtrooms and working on little projects. No matter how small or big your role is, everyone at Rossen Law Firm makes you feel a part of the family.
When I’m not with Rossen Law Firm, I work as a paralegal for an Estate Planning and Probate firm. I also am a mom, so on the weekends you can find me digging in the dirt with my son or enjoying a good pool day. When I can I like to read a good book or listen to the “Crime Junkie” podcast.
I’m a sophomore at Coral Glades High School. I enjoy critical thinking and debating. My goal is to go to law school after college and become a lawyer.
I love getting to learn about criminal defense strategies to better understand how the cases are dealt with. I’ve learned a lot about the court process through sitting in at court. Sitting in on client meetings has shown me how to compassionately relate with clients. I have better learned to empathize with people facing criminal defense charges.
I love staying involved with my community. I’m in my school’s Key Club and National Honor Society, where I participate in service projects to help benefit my community and others. I also love learning about different law cases, which is why I am co-president of my Student Law Association. To relax at home, I love to watch shows on Netflix, my favorite being Grey’s Anatomy.
My name is Esmira De Leon and I am a senior at Coral Glades High School. I was born in Dominican Republic and moved here about 5 years ago. I look forward to attending Nova Southeastern University and later going to Law School. My dream is to become a criminal defense attorney or a civil rights attorney.
Since the first time I reached out to Adam and his team they were nothing but welcoming. I love being able to start learning about what being an attorney is truly lucky at such an early stage of my life. Interning with Rossen Law Firm has helped me be a step closer to achieving my dreams, while also having fun.
Within the first few days I was already able to experience and sit in to a few client meetings and virtual court. Of course this was a bit confusing to me but Adam and Manny were able to help me gain a better understanding of what this all meant.
When not working for RLF I am involved with my church and extra curricular activities. I am currently Co- President for the Student Law Association at my school, along with being involved in other clubs. I love to spend time with my friends and family, while also finding fun activities to do at home because of the quarantine :)
My name is Patricia Herrera and I am a recent graduate from the University of Miami with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and Spanish. I have a passion for politics and community service and attempt to use these passions daily and in the work I complete. I plan to attend law school in the Fall of 2021 and work in politics after I graduate.
I enjoy interning at Rossen Law Firm because the staff at the firm has cultivated a great environment for learning and growth and it has allowed me to begin learning about the legal system from day one. Additionally, they have allowed me to sit in on virtual hearings and practice my analytical skills, with projects that the team creates, in order to challenge their interns. The firm proves that they not only have an interest in teaching their interns about the legal field but about how to prepare them to ask questions, seek answers, and learn every aspect about case management so that the interns may experience firsthand what working as a lawyer entails. Rossen Law Firm cares about their team and takes extra measures to ensure that they grow in the time that they spend with the firm.
When I am not working for the firm I am either studying for the LSAT, volunteering for different nonprofit organizations and spending time with my family. I love volunteering and it is something I employ much of my freetime doing. On the off chance that I have extra time, I spend it either reading or crafting.
