When Haley Moss was three years old, her parents took her to the doctor because she wasn’t speaking. She was diagnosed with autism, and her mom and dad were told that she likely would never graduate from high school, never make a friends and never get a driver’s license.

Today, Moss is an associate attorney in Miami at Zumpano Patricios, having been sworn in to the Florida bar in January after graduating from the University of Miami School of Law.

In this episode, Law.com reporter Dylan Jackson, who wrote a news story about Moss when she was admitted to practice last month, talks with Moss about how she’s managing an associate’s workload and how she’s balancing it with self-care to defy assumptions about autism.
