Courtney’s passion for real estate and environmental law was cemented in 2014, when she drove cross-country for an internship with an Alaskan law firm. Her internship gave her the unique opportunity to assist in several federal litigation matters in defense of endangered species, clean water and clean air. Before joining the Davis Malm team, Courtney served as Law Clerk to the Honorable Mark V. Green, Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Appeals Court, and the Honorable Robert B. Foster and Honorable Howard P. Speicher, both of the Massachusetts Land Court.
