Announcing Just-Tech’s New Director of Consulting – Ellen Samuel
As we start a brand new year, we are excited to announce that Ellen Samuel has joined the Just-Tech team as our new Director of Consulting.
Ellen is passionate about using innovative technology to improve access to justice and serve low-income communities with their legal issues more effectively and efficiently. After becoming a licensed attorney in 2009, Ellen joined one of Illinois’ largest civil legal aid law firms, Prairie State Legal Services. While at Prairie State, Ellen handled a wide variety of legal issues for her low-income and elderly clients, from helping prevent clients losing their housing and public benefits to protecting victims of domestic violence. Ellen tries to convey her enthusiasm for legal technology to her students as an adjunct professor and has been teaching classes in legal technology and electronic discovery for over five years.
We look forward to introducing Ellen to our clients and the community at large in the coming weeks. Ellen, as well as others from the Just-Tech team, will be attending LSC’s Innovations in Technology 2023 conference this January. She will be presenting on IT Security and LSNTAP’s Data and Evaluation Toolkit. We hope to see you there!
