Starting in December, Collora LLP will sponsor attorney Julia McLetchie to serve as a Special Assistant Federal Defender in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts for six months. Julia, who has been a Collora attorney since 2011, will join the 15 attorneys in the Boston Federal Public Defender Office in representing individuals in federal criminal cases who cannot afford to hire a lawyer.
Julia is excited about the opportunity to provide this service. “Collora is a long-time supporter of the right of all individuals facing criminal charges to a vigorous defense, regardless of their economic circumstances. The firm’s sponsorship of this externship puts that value into action.”
