Abigail Staudt, Esq.

Legal Aid is proud to announce attorney Abigail Staudt has been selected as a 2018 recipient of The Honorable Abraham Lincoln Marovitz Public Interest Law Award by her alma mater, Chicago-Kent College of Law. Abby is the Managing Attorney of Legal Aid’s Housing Law practice. The Marovitz award is given to alumni who have graduated in the last 15 years and who have demonstrated outstanding public interest leadership, and who most reflect the character, life and work of the Honorable Abraham Lincoln Marovitz, a 1925 graduate.

Staudt began her public interest work with Legal Aid in 2006, representing low-income residents of Northeast Ohio in housing and domestic violence issues.

Ms. Staudt leads all of Legal Aid’s landlord tenant work and is currently involved in Legal Aid’s advocacy to establish a right to counsel for low-income people in housing cases, and work for changing policies to better protect tenants and their children from lead hazards. She has also served as Board President of low-income housing community Cogswell Hall, worked as a housing stabilization specialist in Seattle, and volunteered with the Peace Corps in Madagascar and Ethiopia.

The Marovitz Award, which includes a monetary stipend to help recipients with their student loans, draws attention to the importance of public interest work, with the hope of encouraging students to pursue careers in this area.
