Welcome New Staff Members!


Greg Bass, currently the Litigation Director at Greater Hartford Legal Aid, will start work next month as our new Senior Attorney focused on disability rights.  Greg has served as Litigation Director in Hartford for over 16 years.  He litigated, with help from NCLEJ staff, Raymond v. Rowland, a major class action under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  After several years of litigation and negotiation, a $25 million settlement was achieved, which restructured welfare agency policies, regulations, notices, and staff hiring and training to comply with the ADA.  Greg’s legal career of 33 years has been devoted to serving as an attorney and managing attorney with legal services programs in Alabama, Washington, California, and Connecticut.  He is a graduate of the American University Washington College of Law.


Emerie Snyder joined NCLEJ as Financial and Administrative Manager earlier this month.  She has served as administrator, office manager, and bookkeeper at a variety of non-profit and for-profit organizations, including Context America, Pomegranate Arts, EMpower: The Emerging Markets Foundation, and 37 Arts.  She received a BFA from New York University, and is also a professional theatre director.
