Estefania Torres is a litigation Associate in Locke Lord’s Boston office.
During law school, Estefania was admitted to the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, one of the three honor societies at Harvard Law School. The Harvard Legal Aid Bureau is also a student-run legal aid clinic and the second largest provider of legal aid services in the Greater Boston Area. The Harvard Legal Aid Bureau’s alumni include figures such as Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Michelle Obama, and current U.S. Representative for Massachusetts, Joe Kennedy.
As a member of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, Estefania represented families and workers under Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:03 in family, employment, and public benefits cases. Concurrent with her legal education, Estefania led a team of four individuals in a case under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in the District Court of Massachusetts. This case involved a team of legal experts from Brazil and complex intercontinental discovery provisions, such as limitations on the deposition of Brazilian nationals. As third-year student, Estefania argued and won a partial motion for summary judgment in Massachusetts Superior Court. Estefania’s advocacy eventually led to a settlement for her client. Prior to attending Harvard Law School, Estefania attended University of Maryland at College Park, where she was a College Park Scholar and wrote her thesis on the similarities between the Bolivian and Colombian farmer’s union movement. Estefania graduated in 3.5 years and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Government and Politics, and a minor in Actuarial Mathematics.
During her summer clerkship at Locke Lord, Estefania had the opportunity to support Locke Lord’s team by reviewing documents for an independent investigation of The Hotchkiss School. In addition, Estefania collaborated with others to write an opinion for an arbitration dispute.
