When Mandisa is not servicing the needs of Upkins Law clients, she sits on the board which provides financial scholarships to students. Believing education is essential and should be available to all, Mandisa’s work on this board helps to ensure students facing financial difficulties are not deterred from achieving their educational goals. Mandisa is also an avid basketball fan and loves to share her passion with her only child, Craig Jr. She has an uncanny ability of inserting basketball analysis in everyday conversations and will passionately advocate on Michael Jordan’s behalf as being the best basketball player…ever.
