Claudia V. De Jesus
Claudia was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but was raised in Buffalo, New York. She double majored in anthropology and sociology at SUNY Buffalo, where she graduated cum laude. She then attended SUNY Buffalo Law School, where she was selected as a Buffalo Public Interest Program Fellow and earned her Juris Doctor in 2013.
Claudia has gained valuable experience through various competitive internships, including time spent with the Erie County District Attorney’s Office and the pro bono group, Volunteer Lawyers Project. These experiences have strengthened Claudia’s commitment to helping injured victims have a powerful voice and strong advocate in the courtroom.
When she has the chance, Claudia spends her free time walking her dog or rowing along one of western New York’s many waterways.
