Kennedy Krieger Institute, Project HEAL
Mallory Finn has worked tirelessly on behalf of children with disabilities who receive clinical services at Kennedy Krieger. During law school, Finn worked for Project HEAL, the legal services arm of Kennedy Krieger, for four semesters, and volunteered over 200 hours. Upon graduating law school in 2014, Finn became the full time staff attorney and has since represented more than 60 children with disabilities and assisted more than 175 families.
Finn is also an active member of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, a national organization for the legal rights of developmentally disabled children.
“Now, more than ever, it is critically important that parents and legal guardians have access to effective legal representation in special education disputes, as well as competent counsel to help them understand their parental rights and procedural safeguards …,” says Lana R. Warren, senior vice president of clinical programs at Kennedy Krieger. “Mallory has demonstrated commitment and dedication by greatly expanding Project HEAL’s impact to provide legal representation to some of Maryland’s most vulnerable children.”
