Carwell  award 09

Last night, Maryland Legal Aid Housing/Consumer Law Unit senior attorney Louise Carwell (left) was presented with the Access to Justice Award by Women’s Law Center president Alex Strubing Paradise. The award recognizes Carwell’s nearly 25 years of helping vulnerable individuals in myriad consumer cases, including predatory lending and foreclosure. Other award recipients were Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Glendora Hughes, general counsel of the Maryland Commission on Human Relations .

“Louise is a recognized expert in foreclosure prevention and was involved in helping victims of predatory lending and individuals facing foreclosure years before the seriousness of the problem was recognized by others,” said Cheryl Hystad, Legal Aid’s director of advocacy. “She is one of a very small number of people who focused on foreclosure problems prior to 2007 and who worked in the trenches helping individuals and families keep their homes.”
