Alysson’s Proven Track Record

During the 2008 mortgage crisis, I left my big law firm job to help people losing their homes. I joined a non-profit legal organization that shared my values for fighting for access to justice and helping financially struggling families. For more than a decade, I led the Consumer Protection Division at the Legal Aid Society of San Diego.

As a consumer rights attorney, I fought scammers and predatory lending schemes that target the elderly. I defended against student loans, medical debt and identity theft. My work led Oportun, a payday lender that targets the Latino community, to dismiss 500 cases for abusive debt collection practices.

I designed, launched, and supervised San Diego’s Bankruptcy Self-Help Center and Clinic. I created a debt defense clinic that has served as a national model for helping people fight against unfair debt collection.

I now run the Housing Rights Project at the University of San Diego that helps the housed stay housed and helps the homeless connect to resources and get back on their feet.

So much more needs to be done.
