Today is a special anniversary date here at LSED. 25 years ago today, on November 3, 1989, Karen Nicolson joined our agency as a Law Graduate!
Karen first began her work at LSED volunteering as a law student. Thereafter, she was hired by the agency as a Law Graduate, became a Staff Attorney once admitted to the Bar, and worked as an advocate on behalf of our elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged clients for over a decade. In the early 2000s, Karen was appointed as our Chief Executive Officer. She has helped our agency to grow during her tenure, even during difficult economic times and changes in the legal profession. As CEO, Karen and expanded the areas of law in which we practice and the counties that we serve.
Karen is a great example of the kind of people we have at LSED – committed support staff, paralegals, and attorneys who truly care about the agency and belief in our mission of providing free civil legal services to the neediest in Western New York.
