Welcome Back Student Intern Michael Williford

Michael Williford has rejoined the Investor Advocacy Clinic for the fall 2016 semester.  A third year law student, Williford plans to practice at a major Atlanta law firm after graduation in May 2017.  Williford eagerly signed up for a second semester of the clinic after working closely with investors in spring 2016.  He says he returned to the clinic for a second semester

“because it is important to me to advance the cases I began working on last year.  Those investors continue to need the clinic’s assistance and I want to help those clients with whom I have established a relationship.”

According to Williford, the Investor Advocacy Clinic is important to him

“[f]or the same reasons it is important to investors – because in a sea of ethical brokers who put their clients’ interests first, there remain those brokers who don’t always understand the nuances of the investments they recommend or take advantage of investors.  The clinic is here to help investors recover their losses when the size of the loss makes traditional legal representation economically impossible.”
