Burns & Levinson LLP Joins the PBC and Takes On Two Pro Bono Projects

The Pro Bono Collaborative is thrilled to welcome the law firm of Burns & Levinson LLP. The law firm will be working on two new projects: The OpenDoors Non-Profit Project and the Year Up Criminal Law and Employment Project. Burns & Levinson LLP will be providing OpenDoors with advice and counsel relating to a newly purchased building that will act as the organization's main office and provide 19 units of permanent supportive housing.

The law firm will also provide presentations to Year Up students regarding expungement, criminal records and how these affect employment.  The first presentation was held on September 27 to over 50 young adults.  Richard Ratcliffe, Esq. of Ratcliffe Harten Burke & Galamaga LLP volunteered to lead this first presentation that was scheduled before Burns & Levinson LLP joined the PBC.  Between Richard and former U.S. Attorney Robert Corrente, Esq. of Burns & Levinson LLP, these young adults were treated to a wealth of experience.
