A Strong Foundation

In 2020, against all odds, Gisele Ayala Mateus, LL.M. ‘18 launched her law practice, G.A.M. Law Office P.C. Through the ups and downs of starting a new business in a tough economy, she credits Brooklyn Law School with giving her the skills and resources she needed to be successful. Last year, she received a Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Achievement as an Entrepreneur from the New York State Assembly.

"Brooklyn Law School gave me a good foundation as an attorney and entrepreneur. I had learned about the law from my school in Colombia, but my experience at Brooklyn Law School taught me so much more. I learned everything I needed to know about doing research, which made me more independent and helped me in my studies, the development of my career, and my performance as a solutions provider to my clients."
