PRESS RELEASE: Isa Velez Has Joined Our Firm as a Summer Associate

Bryan Schwartz Law, P.C. is pleased to announce that Isa Velez has joined the firm as a Summer Associate. Isa received the 2023 Employee Justice Summer Clerkship from the Foundation for Advocacy, Inclusion & Resources (FAIR) in support of her work at the firm.

A student at the University of California College of the Law, San Francisco, Isa has served on the Hastings Public Interest Law Foundation executive board, interned with the National Lawyers Guild, and is a research assistant to support UC Law SF’s Professor Thalia González’s work in educational inequality, health justice, and restorative justice.  Isa is concentrating in Social Justice Lawyering at UC Law SF.

Isa has also advocated for clients under attorney supervision through the East Bay Community Law Center’s Health and Welfare practice, assisting clients through navigating the complicated public benefits process, supporting appeals for denial of benefits, and particularly supporting parents obtaining In-Home Supportive Services for their children with extraordinary needs.  Further, she has advocated for workers’ rights through her work at Legal Aid at Work’s Workers’ Rights Clinic and UC Law SF’s Individual Representation Clinic, which handles wage and hour claims in the Labor Commissioner’s Office.

Prior to attending law school, Isa graduated from Reed College, majoring in Political Science.  She is dedicating her legal education and career towards advocating for individuals facing various forms of injustice and supporting movements addressing the underlying causes of these injustices.

Attorney Bryan Schwartz opened the practice in January 2009. Bryan Schwartz Law, P.C. is dedicated to continuing the struggle for civil rights and equality of employment opportunity and helping Americans from every background to achieve their highest career potential.
