Is it possible to practice in the public interest at a major law firm? How can you build a legal career working on complex commercial real estate deals while serving a higher purpose?
David Abromowitz has been doing that for almost 40 years.
David Abromowitz is a real estate attorney who is nationally known for his work on complex development and finance deals. A major focus of his practice has been on affordable housing and economic development. He also has significant experience in workforce development issues supporting youth opportunities.
David is a longtime partner in the law firm Goulston & Storrs, where he headed up the firm's real estate group and its pro bono committee. For the past dozen years he has been moving more into the non-profit and political realm.
Most recently, David launched the New Power Project, a national effort supporting people who’ve grown up in underserved communities run for local and district elective office. Before that he served six years as Chief Public Policy Officer at YouthBuild USA.
He is a past chair and founding member of both the Lawyers’ Clearinghouse on Affordable Housing and Homelessness and of the American Bar Association’s Forum Committee on Affordable Housing and Community Development. He also served six years on the board of Mass Development, the Commonwealth’s economic development agency.
And he recently wrote his first novel!
