FAMILY LAW AS A CAREER
Kaylesh has always gravitated towards helping families and children. She started her career as a high school special education teacher in Brooklyn, New York. Within her first year of teaching, she quickly realized the importance of advocacy. Kaylesh found herself advocating for her students on a daily basis and working with their families to help them obtain additional opportunities and resources within the school system. Throughout her advocacy efforts she started to gain an interest in the legal field and decided to apply to law school. During law school, Kaylesh took courses centered around education and topics that impacted families. She also participated in the Maryland Carey Law's Community and Equity Development Clinic, where she supported various non-profit organizations in Baltimore City. In addition to her clinic work, Kaylesh participated in several internship programs and took on several leadership roles. Kaylesh was selected as a Thurgood Marshall Clerk for the Maryland Office of the Attorney General, where she worked with the Advice and Opinions Division. She also interned for the Office of the General Counsel for Montgomery County Public Schools, where she researched the impact of school policies on students and families.
Upon graduation, Kaylesh took a clerkship with the Honorable Judge Robert K. Taylor Jr., at the Baltimore City Circuit Court. As a clerk, she assisted with both civil and criminal law matters. Her experience at the Circuit Court provided her with a strong understanding of how to be a successful litigator. After her clerkship, Kaylesh started working at a family law firm where she assisted with divorce, custody, child support, peace orders, and protective order matters. While at the firm, Kaylesh was able to build a solid understanding of family law matters and gained experience practicing in various counties throughout Maryland.
