Over the years, G.S. Proctor & Associates has been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with talented young interns who join our team eager to learn and grow as they complete their education and embark on their careers.
Devon Goodwin is one of our newest interns, and we can’t wait to see where his career will ultimately take him. In the meantime, we’re excited to have him as an important member of our team this summer before he starts law school in the fall.
We met Devon this year during the Maryland legislative session. Through his internship, he’ll have the opportunity to gain more experience in understanding the inner workings of government. Devon is passionate about justice and has laid out ambitious career plans to use his passion for the greater good.

I will return to school this fall as I am enrolled at the University of the District of Columbia’s David A. Clarke School of Law. I will study international comparative law, criminal law, and business law over my matriculation.
