Sandy Moskowitz was reelected to the Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS) Executive Committee. In this role, Sandy will continue his work to advance the GBLS mission to provide high-quality legal representation to low-income individuals and families in the Greater Boston area.

Sandy, a former legal services attorney, is a longtime supporter of GBLS and has held positions on its board since 2008. In addition to the Executive Committee, Sandy will continue to serve as a member of the Board’s Program Priority Committee. He said, “The services that Greater Boston Legal Services provide are critical to ensuring all citizens access to fundamental legal rights. I am honored to continue supporting the GBLS mission in representing our most vulnerable citizens to protect their housing, incomes and safety.”

For nearly 40 years, Sandy has dedicated himself to supporting civil legal aid. He began his career as an attorney for Birmingham Area Legal Services in Alabama. From 2010 to 2013, Sandy served as Chair of the Massachusetts Equal Justice Coalition and led the organization’s efforts to increase state funding for legal aid programs, which continue to face increased demand. For over 10 years, he also led a Boston Bar Association committee that created and operated the Lawyer for a Day Program at the Boston Housing Court. In 2006, Sandy was awarded the Adams Pro Bono Publico Award by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court for his work on this program, which has been a model both in assisting low income litigants and in relieving the great burden pro se litigants place on the court.
