Prior to law school, Ms. Salisbury spent several years working in the Bay Area legal community, including working at a patent prosecution law firm and also serving in various roles for the Santa Clara County Superior Court, criminal division. During law school, Ms. Salisbury was a semi-finalist in the Internal Trial Team Competition, an Honors Moot Court Internal competitor, and served on the Advocacy Committee for the Honors Moot Court Board Internal. She also interned at the Santa Clara Superior Court, Family Justice Center in the self-help center, where she cultivated a deep interest in family law. Ms. Salisbury assisted self-represented litigants to correctly fill out their parentage and dissolution forms as well as aiding victims of abuse in filing restraining orders. Ms. Salisbury was moved by the courage these litigants possessed as they made tough decisions while trying to navigate the murky waters of the court system.
After this internship, Ms. Salisbury was certain she would pursue a career in Family Law. She took courses to prepare herself for this endeavor including: California Community Property, Family Law, Family Wealth Management, and a domestic violence seminar. She also gained useful experience as an advocate while interning at the Katharine and George Alexander Community Law Center, assisting low income, consumer rights clients, who had been unfairly taken advantage of by businesses. After successfully passing the July 2019 California State Bar Examination, Judge Cynthia Sevely invited Ms. Salisbury to come back to criminal court and serve as a Post-Bar Law Clerk where she supported several judges drafting complex memorandum and making recommendations on pending matters in criminal court.
Ms. Salisbury joined Hoover Krepelka, LLP in September 2020 as a Post-Bar Law Clerk while awaiting admission to the State Bar of California. In October 2020, Ms. Salisbury was promoted as an Associate Attorney.
