Prior to attending law school, Kaysia gained extensive experience working as a paralegal specialist with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and various practice areas including, Intellectual Property, White Collar, Tax, Securities, and Patent Prosecution.

What type of internships are offered?
Earley Law Firm offers internships and externships to local students in law school, college, paralegal studies, and high school. These internships (office environment/ courtroom experience) and externships (qualify for academic credit) are non-paying but may be for academic credit and/or student service hours. Our internships are flexible – and include full-time and part-time summer internships (either half-days or part of a week) as well as part-time internships during the school year. Scheduling is flexible and because the internship is unpaid, we are more than happy to have you structure your internship around any other paying employment or school classes. Our goal is to educate and inform you about the private practice of law for as much time as you would like to be so educated and informed.
What type of law does Earley Law Firm practice?
Earley Law Firm practices criminal, civil, personal injury and juvenile law. To learn more about her areas of practice, please browse this website for more info.
What can I expect during my internship?
We try to expose you to court, client meetings, depositions, mediations & trials (if we have any going on), drafting pleadings, research memos, interviewing witnesses, investigating cases, various marketing meetings and tasks and just as much of the private practice as possible! The majority of the internship is observational and interactive. The purpose of the internship is to educate you and broaden your view of the private practice of law in a small law firm. We try to give you exposure to whatever areas of the law that may be of interest to you –just let us know! If you want to learn a little bit of every area of the law in which we practice – we can do that as well.
Every week, Earley Law Firm’s paralegal sends out a list to all interns of the upcoming week’s activities (depositions, court hearings, client meetings, attorney phone conferences, seminars, board meetings, etc.) that are anticipated and can be attended in the following week. Kaysia Earley will closely supervise assignments. We typically have a list of available assignments and you can choose which ones you would like to work on. Occasionally, upon your request, remote tasks can be assigned that can be done without coming to the office if you would like.
Dress is business casual. Suits are not required (unless attending court). You can bring your lunch – we have a kitchen, microwave, etc. Parking is free, and we are conveniently located less than five minutes from Broward Mall.
We do ask that you give us a general idea of your expected intern schedule so we know when to expect you and when to look for you to attend scheduled activities. If you are sick or have other appointments or vacation plans, we simply ask that you give us as much notice as possible.
Do you offer paid employment after the internship?
Unfortunately, at this time, given our small size and limited hiring needs, except in very rare situations, we are not able to offer employment following the internship. We do, however, provide letters of recommendation (so long as the intern’s performance supports such a letter) and try to provide hiring advice and useful contact information.
How can I apply for an internship with Earley Law Firm?
We would love to have you come learn and spend some time with us! If you are interested in an internship or externship, please send Earley Law Firm your resume, a writing sample, and the period of time you are seeking.
