I began practicing Community Lawyering at Neighborhood Legal Services in 1996 with a focus on providing transactional and litigation services to low-income communities, small businesses, and individuals as well as organizatins in Essex County that demonstrate a commitment to improving the lives of its residents. Due to changes in funding availability, my focus changed in 2010 to providing eviction defense as part of NLS' Lawyer for the Day Program. In 2012 I became lead attorney for the Foreclosure Prevention Project. In 2014 NLS merged with its sister entity in Lowell and Northeast Legal Aid emerged with a subsidiary, Northeast Justice Center, to which I am affiliated.
