Tiffany Gilmartin--Clinic Fellow, Thomas Jefferson Veterans Legal Assistance Clinic
Tiffany Gilmartin is the clinic fellow for the Thomas Jefferson School of Law Veterans Legal Assistance Clinic. The Veterans Legal Assistance Clinic provides primarily civil legal services to homeless veterans enrolled at Veterans Village San Diego. The legal services the veterans clinic provides help struggling veterans reintegrate into society by managing the crippling legal burdens their years living on the street incurred.
In the past, Tiffany was a “freeway flier,” teaching English at far-flung campuses across Southern California including California State University, San Bernardino and San Diego State. She tired of commuting for a living and settled in San Diego, where she taught at Southwestern College for a few years. Tiffany has degrees from Thomas Jefferson School of Law, the University of Southern California, and the University of Kentucky.
After college, Tiffany served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Latvia, teaching English as a Second Language. In her free time, Tiffany is an avid CrossFitter, an urban backyard farmer, and a homebrewer of beer. Tiffany currently resides in University Heights. She is from Saugus, California.
