Priscilla Ruiz joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2023. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.
While in law school, Priscilla served as a law clerk and clinical fellow for the University of Miami Health Rights Clinic. During her tenure at the clinic, she represented several indigent clients in obtaining legal status and public benefits.
