Washington, DC (September 20, 2013) – The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has hired Amanda Freeman of Woodbridge, Virginia as an addition to its cutting-edge legal team.
Freeman is a member of the Virginia State Bar and 2009 graduate of the Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
“Amanda brings a real commitment to defending and advancing individual liberty to the Foundation,” said Ray LaJeunesse, vice president and legal director of the National Right to Work Foundation.
“She will assist the Foundation’s legal staff in helping conscientious workers refrain from paying for Big Labor’s political agenda, enforcing individual employees’ rights against the abuses of compulsory unionism, and establishing new precedents increasing workplace freedom.”
As the newest of the Foundation’s 17 staff attorneys, Freeman will help build on the Foundation’s litigation record for union-abused workers that includes 16 cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, one of which will be argued in November. Currently, National Right to Work Foundation attorneys represent thousands of workers in nearly 200 active cases nationwide.
Before joining the Foundation, Freeman served as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Glen A. Huff of the Virginia Court of Appeals and was previously a judicial clerk for the Honorable Robert J. Humphreys of the Virginia Court of Appeals. She was also an intern for Lentz, Stepanovich & Bergethon, PLC, in Virginia Beach and was a paralegal at Mauck & Baker, LLC, in Chicago, Illinois.
While at Regent, Freeman was managing editor of the school’s Law Review and also studied abroad in Strasbourg, France. She holds a bachelors degree in Administrative Management with a minor in Political Science from Bob Jones University, where she graduated cum laude in 2005.
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization providing free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights have been violated by compulsory unionism abuses. The Foundation, which can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-336-3600, assists thousands of employees in more than 250 cases nationwide per year.
