Hello Ms. Giampolo,

I am a fellow LGBT friendly attorney who has started her own firm. I currently practice primarily immigration law, which has been a very important area of law for many LGBT couples since DOMA was struck down at the end of June. My husband and I operate our law practice together and we have been working with many LGBT couples since the end of DOMA.

I was told by some of my LGBT friends in Philadelphia who work in different organizations (ex: Philadelphia Fight) that you might be a good person to connect with. I notice that you do not practice immigration law, but practice many other areas of law. Perhaps we could develop a reciprocal relationship since many of my LGBT clients are in need of other legal services such as real estate and estate planning.

If you would be interested in speaking further or meeting for lunch, please let me know.

My number is 215-558-7600. It seems we have alot in common and I would love to speak further.

Best regards,

MS. Giampolo. I am an LGBT, U.S. Air Force Retiree attending Drexel University School of Law. I was wondering if you were still interviewing for summer legal intern positions, and if so what the proper way would be to apply.
