Cana Noel has been with The Micklin Law Group, LLC since June of 2017. She is currently working as a Law Clerk. Cana completed the Juris Doctor/ Master’s in Public Health dual degree program at Temple University. Through this program, Cana developed a passion for interdisciplinary studies. She learned how family law often incorporates a wide array of legal as well as socioeconomic issues. As a summer fellow for the Pennsylvania Health Law Project, Cana worked with one of the attorneys to publish a desk book for Family Law Judges in Pennsylvania. The desk book is used to inform them of how family size impacts public benefits cases. In addition, Cana worked as an intern for the Attorney General’s Office of New Jersey. During this internship, she was able to assist on cases in the Department of Children and Families Practice Group, defending children’s rights.
Cana received a summer fellowship grant through Equal Justice of America to work in a legal aid office for the summers of 2014 and 2015. Cana assisted low-income clients in North Carolina in obtaining public benefits and navigating Philadelphia’s Family Court system. Cana assisted over 50 clients in eligibility and service denial cases. This work motivated her to pursue a career where she could directly interact and work with clients
Cana believes that each client has a unique story that requires careful attention and open communication to ensure that clients are fully informed of the legal process. Cana recognizes that family law issues are complex and require that clients be treated with patience, compassion and respect.
As a summer fellow for the Pennsylvania Health Law Project, Cana worked on a case where a family of ten with multiple health issues all lacked medical insurance. Through rigorous advocacy, Cana was able to ensure that every single family member was properly insured through government entitlement programs.
