October 4, 2022

Chicago, IL, October 4, 2022 – Maron Marvel is pleased to announce the appointment of Jessica C. Barnes to the Cabrini Green Legal Aid Associate Board (CGLA). Jessica is a defense lawyer based out of the firm’s Chicago, Illinois, office.

Founded in 1973, the CGLA aimed to meet the legal needs “arising from the lack of opportunity, criminalization of poverty, and racial inequity experienced within the Cabrini Green community.” It has since expanded to a statewide effort to provide holistic legal and social support to those affected by the criminal legal system.

As a part of the CGLA Associate Board, Jessica directly supports the organization’s vision of a more just and equitable criminal legal system.
