Judge Diane Navarrete
“I am the first lawyer in my family, so CLEO provided me with a fountain of information and motivation to see my dream of being a lawyer come true. I would not be where I am today without the CLEO professors and participants who helped me along my journey. CLEO provided financial support, motivation and life-long friends.”
