A University of Chicago Law School Graduate, Sophia came to LCLC after working in the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Clinical Program at the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic and being exposed to the ways that the system traumatizes young people in particular. She hopes to give young people the sense that they are seen and have someone in their corner fighting for them no matter what. Sophia is committed to changing the narrative about crime and punishment and contributing to the movement toward decarceration and rehabilitation. She is motivated by her clients and seeing their progress and the support of her colleagues. She unwinds with family, music, and reading.
