BOSTON—In January, Kevin Budris joined NELC as a staff attorney, working out of our Boston office. After completing a two-year federal clerkship for Judge Janet Bond Arterton in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, Kevin was an associate in the litigation department at Ropes & Gray, LLP. During his time at Ropes & Gray, Kevin maintained an active pro bono environmental litigation practice, including appellate matters regarding the tax exempt status of conservation land in Massachusetts and priority habitat regulations under the Massachusetts Endangered Species Act.
Kevin graduated from Harvard University in 2004 and received his J.D. from the George Washington University Law School in 2010. He served as a student attorney with the law school’s Federal Criminal Appellate Clinic, representing indigent defendants on direct appeal from felony convictions.
In addition to his legal career, Kevin is an avid hiker, home brewer, and human companion to a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, a three-legged cat, and an overworked pediatric resident.
