Haley Moss talks to MarketWatch ahead of World Autism Awareness Day

The woman widely recognized as likely the first openly autistic person admitted to the Florida Bar is laying down the law against harmful stereotypes.

Haley Moss, 24, was sworn into the bar in January and now practices health-care and international law at the Miami law firm Zumpano Patricios.
