The first contribution in our National Hispanic Heritage Month spotlight series comes from San Diego Associate Michelle Perry, who describes how her Mexican immigrant parents “exemplified perseverance” as they worked to provide her with the American Dream. She also expresses gratitude for the Hispanic families and youth leaders who protested segregation and unequal conditions in California’s school systems.
Michelle is a member of Lewis Brisbois’ Workers' Compensation Practice and a graduate of California Western School of Law.
