  • Elizabeth C Ligon

    I first knew Robyn when she worked as a student intern for the Seattle Community Law Center (SCLC) while I was executive director of that organization, and now Robyn and I serve together on the board of directors of SCLC. Robyn is a smart, dedicated and compassionate advocate for the legal rights of the poor and underserved. I would recommend her services without reservation.
