My name is Austin Steele, and I am the Legal Program Assistant with GWAAR. I am a 2021 graduate of Madison Area Technical College’s Paralegal Associate Degree Program. I have been very interested in the Elder Law and Advocacy side of law ever since I started receiving public benefits and services, as well as Medicare and Medicaid due to my disabilities. Once I started the Paralegal program, relatives began asking me “How can I do this or that?” and I wanted to make sure they have answers. I joined GWAAR part time at the end of August 2021 as the Legal Program Assistant after completing a three month Paralegal internship.
