Praise for W&L Law Alum

Ernani DeAraujo, a 2008 graduate of the Washington and Lee School of Law, received praise last month for his work as neighborhood liaison for Boston’s mayor, Thomas Menino.

Ernani joined Adrian Madaro, legislative aide to Massachusetts State Representative Carlo Basile, in assisting East Boston residents who were displaced by the collapse of one building and the subsequent demolition of another.

Ernani helped 70 affected citizens find housing and made sure that they had food and support.

A story in the East Boston Times-Free Press provided details of Ernani’s work during the crisis.
