Residential real estate owners, brokers, agents, and mortgage lenders confront many civil rights and discrimination-related challenges. Housing providers must ensure against discriminatory policies and practices, while addressing tenant conflicts involving racial, sexual, or other forms of harassment and hate-motivated physical intimidation and violence.
Housing providers at times require the assistance of a uniquely qualified independent attorney who provides a broad range of professional services in civil rights and discrimination matters.
For example, allegations of tenant-on-tenant racial or sexual harassment requires an internal investigation. With my extensive investigative and enforcement experience in civil rights and housing discrimination as former Assistant Attorney General and Civil Rights Division Chief in the Massachusetts Office of Attorney General, I offer high-quality, independent investigations to promote early dispute resolution, reduce costs, and help minimize liability risks in housing-related matters.
My extensive government enforcement experience in housing also enables me to offer practical advice and training and highly skilled litigation consulting, legal assistance, and co-counseling to help defend civil rights and discrimination cases in administrative agencies and in state and federal courts.
I look forward to working together with you in civil rights and discrimination matters.
