Talia Charme-Zane is a Senior Legal Assistant in Sanford Heisler Sharp’s Washington, DC office. Talia graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with interdisciplinary honors in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. For her senior thesis, Talia applied queer theoretical texts to Stephen Sondheim’s 1986 musical Into the Woods.
In 2014, Talia interned with an attorney who provided pro bono legal services to homeless criminal defendants in Palo Alto, and developed an interest in the rights of the accused and the incarcerated. For the next two summers, Talia was an intern investigator at the D.C. Public Defender Service where her case load included both serious felonies and parole cases. At Stanford, Talia also worked as a research assistant for Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt, whose lab explores implicit racism in policing. She is planning to attend law school in the future.
