Maureen joined EBCLC’s Clean Slate Unit in 2017, and works with indigent people in Alameda County to remove barriers to employment, housing and civic engagement caused by contact with the criminal legal system. She also works with EBCLC’s immigration unit to provide specialized post-conviction relief to people who are experiencing adverse immigration consequences due to previous contact with law enforcement.
Maureen is an active member of the Justice Reinvestment Coalition of Alameda County (JRC), and serves on the steering committee. Through the JRC, she is a part of the Court Watch campaign, the DA Accountability group, and Decarcerate Alameda County, working to create a fair and just public safety system that invests in our communities, our families and our people.
Prior to working at EBCLC, Maureen spent ten years in private practice in Alameda County where she represented hundreds of indigent adults and children accused of serious crimes. She started her law career at the Contra Costa County Public Defender’s Office.
