Marcela J. Arevalo joined Clark, Love & Hutson as an attorney in 2021, focusing her practice on personal injury litigation. She has held various internships and clerkships in the legal industry since 2015, including a focus on corporate governance, contract drafting and negotiation, and compliance policies and procedures.
