Ms. Lane was also a certified Court Appointed Special Advocate (C.A.S.A) for children. In this capacity, she volunteered her time working on behalf of children who had entered the social services system due to neglect or abuse. In addition to supporting the child, Ms. Lane interviewed associated parties (lawyers, school principals, social workers, etc.). Every six months, Ms. Lane wrote a detailed report for review by the Family Law Judge.
Most recently, Andrea worked for a law firm, assisting with administrative duties and processing legal documents.
