Public Sector/Public Interest Law Award: Cheryl Sessions, Housing Advocate

Cheryl Sessions, in-house counsel and policy director for ROC USA, LLC in Concord, has been selected as the recipient of the NHBA’s 2010 Outstanding Service in Public Sector/Public Interest Law award.

Sessions, nominated by attorney Peter T. Beach of the Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green law firm, has helped to perfect a strategy to enable residents in mobile home parks, typically people with low and moderate incomes, to form cooperatives to purchase the mobile home parks, providing them with stability and the potential to progress economically. Sessions originally worked for the NH Community Loan Fund on this project but since has become the lead lawyer in expanding this concept from a statewide to national scale. "Attorney Sessions took a program that made good economic and social justice sense in NH and articulated the legal theories, policy initiatives, the tax-exempt purposes, and the legal models that could be extracted and used as a model for the country," said Beach in his nomination letter.

Sessions, admitted to the Bar in 1985, is a Franklin Pierce Law Center graduate, and previously worked for the NH Community Loan Fund.

The Outstanding Service in Public Sector/Public Interest Law award, which can be presented to an individual or to an entity, was first awarded last year. Nominations are reviewed by a committee of NH Bar members drawn from the government and public interest sectors.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
