Pro Bono and Community Service
Julia is a co-chair of the firm’s associate-organized fundraising drive to benefit Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS). GBLS provides free legal assistance and representation on civil matters to the neediest residents of Boston and its 31 surrounding cities and towns.
Julia began her service to GBLS a few years ago as a member of the fundraising effort and now organizes the firm’s efforts to raise money. Over the last few years, the firm raised over $50,000 in support of GBLS’ family law unit.
In 2014 and 2015 Julia co-chaired the firm’s Citizen Schools/Discovering Justice program in which the firm’s attorneys work with students from the Boston Public School system to prepare and perform a moot court in front of judges at the Federal courthouse. The program teaches elementary and middle school aged students about the justice system, as well helping them develop their writing and public speaking skills.
