Hellos and Farewells at CLC | Fall 2017

Earlier this year, we said goodbye to Staff Attorney Kathryn Bissonnette and Professional Assistant Brooke Garcia. Both have taken on new roles at Brown, Paindiris, & Scott. We wish them all the best and know that they will do many amazing things at their new ventures!

As sad as goodbyes can be, we couldn’t be more excited to have two new staff members on the CLC team!
