Intentional growth at Metropolitan starts with our strategic, inclusive and forward-thinking leadership. Both fresh and familiar faces are coming together, in the spirit of collaboration that defines Metropolitan’s approach to community growth, to refresh the ways we create new opportunities and increase access to our existing opportunities for the children and families we serve.
of the Legal Aid Society
As we approach the Legal Aid Society’s 100th year as part of Metropolitan Family Services, we’re looking ahead to one of the most exciting times in its history. A fresh perspective on LAS’ direction comes in the form of its new Executive Director, Miguel Keberlein.Miguel, who joins LAS after more than 15 years in legal aid, brings to Metropolitan a background in immigrants’ and workers’ rights, as well as client services. His experience includes integrating social work services into legal programs, training staff in providing trauma-informed services to clients, and developing statewide strategy and initiatives; all are elements germane to the future success of LAS.
– Ric Estrada
“With his extensive background in law, immigration, human trafficking and in unifying the equally important work of legal and social services, Miguel is the ideal choice to lead the Legal Aid Society and further our work in promoting “wraparound” services to help clients find lasting solutions.”
