Disability Rights Attorney in Cleveland, Ohio
Attorney Rebecca Cervenak served as a disability rights attorney in San Diego, California nearly seven years before returning back to her hometown of Cleveland.
“I’m a big believer in education and rehabilitation,” Rebecca explained. Throughout the years, she observed various acts of unfairness and inequality. These observations prompted her to study law so she could have an impact on the world and help those who are less fortunate.
Rebecca first studied Criminal Justice at Bowling Green State University where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. From there, she attended California Western School of Law where she obtained her Juris Doctor degree.
Attorney Cervenak has worked for many non-profit organizations, and she is looking forward to furthering her goal of helping people through the Liner Legal office. She explains, “The people here seem to really care about the work and actually care about the clients. You know, I’ve primarily worked for non-profits so I never thought that I would make the switch to go private, but, I think this is a really good fit for me because, even though there is a profit, this firm really cares about the clients and also does a lot to give back to the community.”
Rebecca is also a court-appointed Guardian ad Litem, a volunteer teacher with the CMBA’s 3Rs program, and the Program Director for Prison Yoga Project – Ohio, facilitating trauma-informed yoga classes and working to implement and expand programming throughout Ohio.
Rebecca and her dog Rufas enjoy visiting the Metroparks while cheering on the Cleveland Browns.
“Being able to help people access the services they need, but also to help them be prepared and comfortable- because going into a courtroom can be really intimidating. To help people prepare for that, to help them understand what to expect, and to be a source of support and comfort is one of my favorite things of being a lawyer.”
