Cashlynn Huynh

Legal Advocate

WHAT DO YOU DO AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

I help move cases forward through research, drafting letters, and client correspondence as Legal Advocate. I also play the role of Co-Chair for our Diversity and Inclusion sub-committee and have been pushing efforts to diversify thought and personal/professional practice for staff.

WHY DO YOU WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

This work leaves resonance with me as someone who has witnessed immigrant and refugee elder abuse due to lack of English proficiency. Working in Victim Services has widened my perspective on how vulnerable LEP populations are because this is a group that doesn’t know how to self-advocate in English-speaking dominated spaces.

HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

I am the first-line of support for victims when I do intake. I provide organizational referrals or schedule appointments for seniors to meet with attorneys.

OTHER LEADERSHIP POSITIONS AND WAYS YOU GIVE BACK?

I am the Co-Chair for our Diversity and Inclusion sub-committee.
