Attorneys Advocate for Cancer Patients and Their Caregivers Through Longtime ABA Project
Healthcare & Life Sciences attorney Jennifer Rangel was quoted in an ABA Journal article about the Cancer Legal Advocacy Interest Group, which aims to protect the legal rights of cancer patients and their families. Additionally, the group trains attorneys on how to help people dealing with a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Ms. Rangel started working with on the project in the 2000s and is now the Vice Chair. She explained that patients often need help preparing wills or navigating employment law issues. Ms. Rangel described her experience working with firms representing the employers.
"What's interesting is we've been able to work with some top employment law firms that primarily or almost exclusively represent employers, but they have been more than willing to come and speak to attorneys attending our workshops on the other side, on how to provide pro bono services," Mr. Rangel said.
