Chelsea Crawford, partner at Brown, Goldstein & Levy, returned to her alma mater, the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, as a featured guest speaker for a discussion regarding decarceration, hosted by the Journal of Race, Religion, Gender & Class. The discussion, which took place on Monday, February 27, drew upon Chelsea’s experience litigating police misconduct and Juvenile Restoration Act cases. Chelsea was joined by Baltimore City Chief of Police Accountability Mariel Shutinya and Carey Law student, Nelly Meschino.
Chelsea spoke on her experiences growing a successful practice in wrongful conviction and police misconduct cases across the State of Maryland. She has worked on some of the largest cases in state and county history, including a $6.5 million settlement on behalf of the family of an unarmed man who was shot and killed by a Baltimore County police officer in 2021. During law school, Chelsea served as the executive editor for the Journal of Race, Religion, Gender and Class and remains active as a proud UM Carey Law alumna.
