Cana’s commitment to justice for you is deep and well-founded.
Through her Juris Doctor and master in public health, Cana has learned how family law issues for men often combine a diverse array of legal and socioeconomic issues. As our Law Clerk, Cana believes that you, as a client of The Micklin Law Group, LLC, have a unique story that requires her careful attention and open communication with both her and the attorney working on your divorce, support, and custody issues. Cana will treat you with compassion, respect and patience.
Before joining us in 2017, Cana was a summer fellow for the Pennsylvania Health Law Project, working with an attorney to write and publish a family law desk book used by family law judges in the Pennsylvania. It informs the judges on the the impact of family size on public benefit cases. She’s justifiably proud that her vigorous advocacy enabled a family of 10, with multiple health issues and no insurance, to each be covered by government entitlement programs. Cana was also an intern for New Jersey’s Office of the Attorney General where she assisted on cases in the Department of Children and Families Practice Group and defended children’s rights.
Equal Justice for America also awarded Cana a summer fellowship where she assisted low-income clients in North Carolina obtain public benefits. She also helped individuals with limited means navigate Philadelphia’s Family Court system. In all, Cana helped 50 clients successfully overcome eligibility and service denial decisions.
