Check out what our Past Students have to Say

Attorney Jas is truly a barrier-breaker in the law field. Her Personal Statement Workbook finally got me through my writer's block. The 1L Success Academy was super helpful as well.

As the first law student and future lawyer in my family, I was so afraid of law school. The 1L Success Academy cleared up a lot of my confusion and even answered questions I didn't know I had. Any person considering law school should take advantage of her services!
– Kadeja T. 

“Attorney Jas was my personal accountability partner. She kept my focus and helped me push through during stressful times. She made sure my spirits were always high and always reaffirmed to me that I was capable. From studying for the LSAT to drafting the perfect personal statement, Jasmin was there to coach me through it all. 

The services she offers are unmatched, and by taking advantage of them, I was able to obtain a $96,000 scholarship to law school! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and I can’t wait to join her 1L success academy to get me prepared for my first year of law school. Thank you, Jasmin, for everything!”
