Alexa will provide personalized pro bono legal advice in transactional matters to low-income entrepreneurs and developing small businesses in East Boston as part of our Belin Economic Justice Project.
With a little over half of the East Boston identifying as minority, the neighborhood has become a draw for immigrant and low-income entrepreneurs. By providing the right support, Alexa “aims to achieve a rise in sustainable small business development in this community.” As a Latina immigrant, Alexa has the ability to personally relate to many East Boston residents. She has over a decade of experience working and helping to manage a minority-owned small business. Alexa is uniquely suited to tackle business and legal issues having earned Master’s degrees in both business and law.
