The newest team members have worked on issues of consumer, criminal, juvenile, racial, and economic justice in organizations such as the National Consumer Law Center, CPCS, Pine Tree Legal Assistance, the Central American Solidarity Association of Maryland, the New York Legal Assistance Group, the United Nations, Girls Incorporated, Cambridge Women’s Center, and the Attorneys General of Massachusetts, and Colorado.
