Steinger, Greene & Feiner Announces Winner of Fall 2019 Child Advocacy Scholarship

We are pleased to announce that California resident Gabriella Sergi has been awarded the semi-annual Law Scholarship for Child Advocates for 2019.

Gabriella is attending the University of California Hastings College of the Law and is expected to graduate in 2022. She plans to become a Public Defender to serve those impacted by mass incarceration. Her passion for this population came from her time as a teacher, where she saw the impact mass incarceration had on her students. She heard stories from her students about violence, addiction, abuse and other issues they faced, and she sought a way to help people in the same situation.

Currently, Gabriella works with the Prison Law Office (PLO), where she corresponds with and visits prisoners. She also monitors the conditions of confinement in California prisons and jails to ensure they are compliant with court orders regarding medical care, developmental disability accommodations, ADA accommodations, and mental health care. Additionally, she leads a case for hearing-impaired class members’ rights, due in part to her knowledge of ASL and deaf culture. 

“We are incredibly proud to present Gabriella with this scholarship,” says Michael Steinger, founding partner of Steinger, Greene & Feiner. “We are also excited to see the impact she has on her community while she is in law school and after she earns her law degree.”

The Steinger, Greene & Feiner Law Scholarship for Child Advocates is awarded to future lawyers who are passionate about raising awareness about child abuse and helping its victims.
