The Project

Indigent youth reentering society after a criminal conviction face an overwhelming number of legal challenges. They can be suspended from school, evicted from public housing, and discriminated against during employment. With no right to counsel after conviction, they face these challenges alone. Michael established the “Community Youth Reentry Project” to provide legal representation for youth during this essential time. Michael provided youth with unique and holistic support to successfully transition from courthouse to community.
