Mia’s career in Family Law began when she served as a student attorney at the University of Colorado’s Juvenile and Family Law Clinic during her second year of law school. There, she represented clients in Domestic Relations and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) cases, while also serving as a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) in dependency and neglect matters. Mia credits her time spent representing Colorado families at the clinic as the driving force behind her desire to continue acting as an advocate for many families to come. Accordingly, Mia joined Johnson Law Group as a Law Clerk in the summer of 2021 and gained experience assisting in dissolution, allocation of parental responsibilities, and guardianship matters throughout her final year at the University of Colorado Law School.
While earning her J.D. degree, Mia enjoyed acting as a peer teacher for Legal Writing classes, serving as a board member for the Juvenile and Family Law Club, and participating in the Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project which gave her the opportunity to teach Constitutional Law to high school students in the community.
Prior to attending law school, Mia received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Hofstra University where she double majored in Business Management and Legal Studies.
As someone who values the rarities in life, Mia’s love for family law blossomed from the notion that no case and no family is exactly the same. Each case is born from deeply personal and unique interfamilial scenarios that require attention to detail, compassion, and most importantly a zealous advocate. Mia strives to uphold these values in her representation and validate the intimate nature of each family’s affairs.
