Wittliff | Cutter is pleased to welcome Caroline Leal to the firm as a legal intern. Caroline is a junior at the University of Texas at Austin studying English and government as part of the liberal arts honors program.
Knowing from a young age that she wanted to pursue a legal career, Caroline’s first legal internship was with Travis County Court 4, which handles family violence cases, as a prosecution intern. In her role supporting the prosecution team, she helped the team obtain evidence and subpoena witnesses, and reviewed reports, records, and other relevant documents to support arguments for potential felony sentencing enhancements and deferred prosecutions.
“Caroline is the consummate professional: she is smart, diligent and hard working,” said Wittliff | Cutter partner María Amelia Calaf (MAC). “She is wise beyond her years; we feel very fortunate to have her. As a Latina, I’m excited that Caroline is interested in a career in law and know that she will make an important contribution wherever she lands after college”
When Caroline is not working, at school, or pursuing volunteer opportunities, she enjoys live music, webcomics, and Broadway shows. A Red Cross-certified lifeguard, Caroline is also an avid swimmer.
A cornerstone value for Wittliff | Cutter is to create opportunities for women and minorities in the legal profession. To that end, Wittliff | Cutter and its attorneys support organizations like UT Minority Women Pursuing Law group, a network of female undergrad students at University of Texas pursuing careers in the legal field.
