Anna Maria Tejada ’99: Drawn to Employment Law and Empowering Young People

Strive. Excel. Network. Give back. Those verbs used by Anna Maria Tejada ’99 in her advice for current Rutgers School of Law–Newark students reveal as much about the work ethic behind her achievements and the success of her immigrant parents in their pursuit of the American Dream as they do her penchant for mentoring. A partner in Kaufman, Dolowich & Voluck, LLC and director of its New Jersey Labor and Employment Group, Tejada credits the Clinical Program with beginning her education in working with clients and arguing in court. As a student, she also led the launch of Fiesta con Sabor, now a major fundraising and networking event for ALALS, and had her note published, one of the first two by a student, in the Rutgers Race and the Law Review. An appellate clerkship with the Hon. John E. Wallace, Jr. followed by an Equal Justice Fellowship yielded invaluable personal and professional benefits. As immediate past president of the Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey, Tejada will continue to lead the mentorship program she began last year. | Read Story
