An interesting tidbit

In 2019, Michael volunteered as an assistant teacher for a not-for-profit school called The Esperanza Project in the Dominican Republic. He volunteered for four months and taught students from the ages of 3-16. Michael spent his free time visiting local beaches, lagoons, and exploring the beautiful town of Cabrera. 


Michael’s interest in working as a legal assistant and eventually becoming a lawyer stems from his passion for defending people’s rights and ensuring they are treated fairly. Michael was drawn toward Bernardi because of its specialization in workplace investigations and human resource law, which involves defending people’s rights in the workplace.
