Housing, criminal record reform, SNAP and cash-assistance programs
With expertise in landlord-tenant law, public benefits such as SNAP and helping people with criminal justice records, Jack is responsible for developing and supporting policies to improve the economic security of low-income Coloradans. Jack has developed a number of successful bills for CCLP, including Senate Bill 245, which extended the notification for month-to-month tenancies from seven days to 21. He also worked with CCLP’s partners to pass three bills intended to address shortcomings in client correspondence and notifications when Medicaid benefits and services are being reduced, terminated or suspending.
Jack earned his J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2015 and a bachelor’s degree from Colorado College in 2012. He previously worked as a volunteer with Community Legal Services of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Legal Assistance, and the Homeless Advocacy Project.
Jack says the best perk at CCLP is working alongside zealous, passionate and dedicated advocates.
