Writing sample from the summer of 2015

I wrote this motion to suppress in the summer of 2015 while a student attorney at Roxbury Defenders Unit, an office of the Public Defender Division of the Committee for Public Counsel Services. You can read it here.

I have permission from my supervisor to use this as a writing sample, and it is my own substantially unedited work. Dates, names, and other information have been changed in the interest of confidentiality.
