Assistant Clinical Professor of Law, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York

I direct the Community Justice Clinic, which represents low-income residents of Buffalo on issues relating to workers’ rights, consumer justice, immigration, civil rights and government benefits. My academic research focuses on the intersection between immigration, labor, and employment law, specifically how the decline of the labor unions has spawned experimentation by immigrant workers into new forms of organizing, collective bargaining, and worker protection. I am also broadly interested in how law either promotes or impedes collective action and power-building in subordinated communities. In my practice, I specialize in creative lawyering through complex litigation and multi-pronged advocacy.
