I am a Summer Legal Intern 1 at the Law Office of Marlene A. Johnson, P.C. My main areas of responsibility are bankruptcies and elections, but I’ve also done research on basic case procedures and created in-office and client manuals to explain the process, so Attorney Johnson does not have to every time.
