Managing Attorney, Housing and Consumer Law
Maryland Volunteer Lawyer Service (MVLS)
You only need to look at her resume to realize that Amy Hennen is, as she puts it, “committed to compassionate lawyering.”
The 2009 graduate of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law works for a Baltimore-based nonprofit legal services organization, Maryland Volunteer Lawyer Service (MVLS), where she focusses on housing and consumer law.
Before that, she worked as a staff attorney for Maryland Legal Aid, a similar organization.
On top of that, as a volunteer she provides free legal assistance to low-income individuals and families through the Baltimore CASH Campaign, takes pro bono cases from the Homeless Person’s Representation Project and mentors law students at the University of Maryland.
In 2015, she was given a Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.
“I work to create a collaborative environment, in my department, in my office, and with partner organizations,” Hennen said. “I have testified before the State Senate and State House of Delegates, when requested by legislators.
“I have appeared on television, provided presentations to community groups and government organizations, and been interviewed by print media to affect positive change and publicize the work we do to possible clients.”
