Passionate about social, racial, and criminal justice issues, Fan knew in his first six months in law school that he wanted to be a trial lawyer who fights for those in need. During his summers, he worked at the Prison Legal Assistance Project, Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust, Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, and National Legal Aid & Defender Association. Upon graduation, he moved to Miami to become a public defender. He has taken hundreds of depositions and tried over sixty jury and bench trials, ranging from misdemeanors to attempted murder. He has spearheaded several impact litigation projects to reform our criminal justice system, published articles on constitutional issues, and presented trainings to attorneys in Miami and Fort Pierce.
