Congratulations Andrea Hernandez!

Congratulations to Andrea Hernandez, winner of the February Bar Stipend!

"It is an honor to be recognized by the OCWLA, which strives to strengthen women in the legal field. I am thankful to have been chosen as a recipient of the 2017 Bar Stipend Award. It encouraged me to move forward with my bar studies as it alleviated the financial responsibility bar takers must face. Law school and the bar are difficult to concur but both have provided me with the intellectual growth and discipline I need to reach my goal in helping people. I hope to influence other women to pursue a career in the legal field as women in the past have guided me to believe in myself."

~ Andrea Hernandez
