Know and Protect Your Rights in a Criminal Defense Matter

Katherine MacElhiney
Katherine MacElhiney Director of Intake and Marketing
  • Katherine MacElhiney is originally from just outside of Boston. She graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with BFA’s in Printmaking and Community Art Education. To meet the requirements for these degrees, she taught at houseless and elderly community art programs. There she began to see the importance of legal representation and resources for these often abused and underrepresented populations.
About Katherine MacElhiney

After graduating, Kat moved to Oakland, a community that she loves because of its’ tolerance, diversity, and passion for the arts. She went into sales at a large tech company to pay the notoriously high bay area rent, and soon developed a unique approach to consultative, honest salesmanship. She has given lectures to budding salespeople called “Empathy is Your Secret Weapon”, which won her an accolade award from General Assembly.

Kat is passionate about prisoners rights advocacy and impacting reforms in our prison system. Because she has loved ones who are incarcerated, she understands the impact that a prison sentence has on communities, families, and the individual. She hopes to someday help enact changes that will lead to more positive rehabilitation and re-entry into society for people who
have served time incarcerated. She truly believes that people contain multitudes far beyond their mistakes. She is very happy to be part of a team that shares this core belief.
