About Annie Braudy


I practiced law for 20 years, as civil rights attorney, policymaker, and lobbyist.  Some highlights:

  • Defeated the Church of Scientology in LA federal court after they tried to destroy the reputation and livelihood of Dr. John Clark, whose work helped families extricate their loved ones from Scientology.

  • Passed legislation, working across the table with Democratic and Republican leadership, to pair early release of non-violent prisoners with community-based services to reduce recidivism and costs to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

  • Recruited and managed a team of volunteer attorneys who reopened the cases of eight incarcerated women, The Framingham Eight, domestic abuse survivors convicted for killing their abusers. This led to multiple releases and reductions in sentences based on self-defense. http://www.cryan.com/blog/20171018.jsp.
