Ghadeer Ashtan comes to us from Wayne State, where she has just graduated with a B.A. in Criminal Justice, and a minor in Psychology. Congrats, Ghadeer!

Ghadeer’s ultimate career goal is to become a criminal defense attorney. She was inspired by serving on a jury.

“I know most people dread it, but I loved it,” she says.

“Being in a legal atmosphere at this office gives me firsthand experience with the system and I am learning how the courts work,” Ghadeer says of her internship. “I am learning a ton. I was able to observe the client/attorney interaction when I sat in on an initial consult. I learned to be personable, understanding, and patient.”

Outside of her legal career aspirations, Ghadeer enjoys spending time with her family. She loves nature, singling out the Detroit riverfront downtown as a favorite spot.
