Mae Watson Grote, Class of ’99, is the featured member profile in the April 2008 issue of the New York County Lawyer, the membership newspaper of the New York County Lawyers Association.
Mae is the executive director of “The Financial Clinic,” a non-profit that she founded to focus on the finances of low-income individuals. The organization helps clients with everything from consumer credit and bankruptcy to tax and public assistance. “I am also fulfilled to have created an organization that ensures ‘working poor’ people have the same set of comprehensive services—financial planning, tax advice, wealth building—that middle- and upper-middle class families already have access to,” Grote says in the article.
