Prior to law school, Ms. Wager worked at St. Bonaventure University as an Assistant Director of Residential Living, where she oversaw a campus community of 1,500 undergraduates and counseled students in academic, emotional, and social crises. Her work in the area of campus sexual assault led her to pursue a career in law. Ms. Wager interned at Copps DiPaola Silverman, PLLC throughout law school, and attributes her growing knowledge of complex matrimonial and family law issues to her mentor, Partner Lorraine R. Silverman.
