Jessica Williams

"I graduated from the Paralegal program last May! I am currently employed as a Court Clerk in the Civil Records Department for the Jackson County 16th Circuit Court in Kansas City, MO. All of my training at ACI definitely prepared me for the workforce. I have been able to utilize all of my skills that I learned and then some."

Marisa Santoyo

“I was in [ACI’s] Paralegal Program, and graduated April 2011. I want to thank [ACI] for teaching us things outside of the law: what an attorney wants from his/her paralegal … I started out very unsure of myself until the end of [ACI’s] program. [ACI] gave me the skills and confidence to excel, and I want to thank [ACI].”

Diane Phon

“I got an offer for [an] Accounting Clerk at Feizy Import and Export in Dallas. I start January 11, 2016 … I have enrolled for school for Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting. [ACI] gave me an opportunity to find myself and have confidence knowing I am able to do more in life.”
