Cooperating Attorneys

GLAD’s cooperating attorneys work in conjunction with GLAD staff attorneys on impact cases. They may act as co-counsel or may act in a supportive capacity providing legal research, writing and strategy. GLAD cooperating attorneys must carry their own malpractice insurance and must be members in good standing with one of the New England state Bar Associations.
