Before setting her sights on law, Aleah’s interest in the medical realm began while serving as a pharmacy technician at Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Her legal journey led her through various internships and externships, including Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, and most notably with a judge at the Circuit Court of Cook County, Law Division. During her judicial externship, she was captivated by a birth injury trial igniting her passion for birth injury law.
