After moving to New York City in 1978 to attend law school, Ms. Keller worked with the Prisoners’ Rights Project of the Legal Aid Society. Her first job as a lawyer was as General Counsel to the Harlem Restoration Project which had a program for ex-offender re-direction in a project which was renovating and managing neglected buildings in Harlem.
In 1994, Ms. Keller joined the firm of Borah, Goldstein, Altschuler, Nahins & Goidel, P.C. as a specialist in low-income and supportive housing and became a partner in 2006. A good part of her practice is with supportive housing not-for-profit organizations who provide not only permanent housing, but also programmatic assistance to ex-offenders.
