Spotlight On: Mahlet Zelleke
Legal Assistant, MLP

"At Northwest Justice Project, MLP is literally held together by Mahlet."  says Catherine West, MLP Attorney.

MLP's legal assistant, Mahlet Zelleke, does it all and more.
"She’s exceptionally detail-oriented and handles all administrative tasks, including electronic case files, gathering documents, scheduling appointments, filing pleadings, scheduling interpreters, reviewing case files and ensuring our reporting to the MLP team."

After completing a Bachelor's degree in Law (LLB) from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, Mahlet earned her Master’s degree in international commerce and policy from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana.
"Mahlet brings empathy and compassion to her work. We are lucky to have her on the MLP team."
