Pro Bono Client Secures Waiver With Help From Goodell Devries Partner 

March 2014

This spring Kristin L. (Kremer) Rieger successfully represented a pro bono client through the Foreclosure Prevention Project of the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service.  The client was at risk of losing his home in a Baltimore City tax sale due to unresolved fines and fees owed to the City arising from multiple Environmental Code violations.  Ms. Rieger appeared before the City Environmental Board and successfully secured a waiver of outstanding Code violation fees.  This enabled the client to direct his limited funds to remediating Code violations so that he could maintain his home.
