After tirelessly working through high school, undergraduate studies and law school and passing the Florida Bar exam, Jose Godinez-Samperio awaits the decision of Florida’s highest court as to whether he will be able to practice law. This is completely unfair. He has the intelligence and perseverance to be attorney, but has hit a ridiculous road block of not having a Social Security number.
Mr. Godinez-Samperio is being punished because his parents brought him to the land of opportunity in hopes of a better future. I hope the justices realize that this aspiring young attorney has met all the requirements he needs to be admitted into the Florida Bar. If not, another young mind will be thwarted from moving forward and making a positive impact on society.
