At CAL, we encourage independence while simultaneously recognizing the benefit of collaboration. Our interdisciplinary team structure was designed to strike an ideal balance. Every incoming staff attorney, client advocate, and intern is assigned to one of our six teams. Each team is comprised of staff members from various practice areas and with a range of experience levels. During weekly team meetings, members can solicit feedback on legal issues, litigation strategies, and a myriad of other matters that arise in the course of the representation. We encourage all staff members--and especially newer ones--to utilize team as both a sounding board and a learning space in their continued practice.
