In 2001, Autumn joined Kazan Law as a law clerk after she completed her first year of law school. Autumn’s time spent as a law clerk supervised by the dynamic senior attorneys with this firm helped to guide her way and mold her into the lawyer she wanted to become. Autumn knew she wanted to be a part of this firm with such passion and dedication to see that corporations are held accountable for their horrible conduct that valued, and often continues to value its own profits above the lives and safety of men, women and children. After passing the California Bar, she accepted an associate position with the firm.
After working as an associate with the firm for several years, Autumn spent some time working in a legal aid where she assisted low income families who could not afford legal services to access the justice system. Growing up, she dreamed of becoming a lawyer to help people and to advocate for those in need. While Autumn enjoyed helping these families pursue justice, it did not compare to the satisfaction of holding corporate America accountable for its despicable acts and being able to help our clients through such a difficult experience.
Our clients are, in large part, either exposed to asbestos through their own employment or the employment of a family member. These people worked to provide for their families, and come to us because unbeknownst to them that work provided them with more than an income, but a death sentence. Each client she has met has touched Autumn’s life, and it has been such an honor to hear their stories, to seek justice on their behalf, and to ensure that their family members will be compensated for such a tragic loss. Nobody should lose a family member because of corporate greed, but for those that do, those corporations actions should not be tolerated and justice must be done.
