As their attorney, you work as hard as possible to get them the disability benefits that they need. But in the short term, your Social Security disability clients may require more than that.

Interns don’t only bring Jansport backpacks to their internships—they also bring enthusiasm, new perspectives, and a lot of energy. In other words, your firm has just as much to gain from the internship as the intern does.
