Ms. Trivedi joined the University of Baltimore, Bronfein Family Law clinic in 2016.  Prior to joining the UB faculty, Ms. Trivedi worked at Brooklyn Defender Services, Family Defense Practice, representing parents embroiled in the child welfare system.  Through this work, Ms. Trivedi tackled the myriad challenges facing low-income, minority, and otherwise disadvantaged families. 

 Ms. Trivedi previously worked on complex securities and accounting fraud matters at Winston & Strawn LLP in New York. There she also dedicated countless hours to pro bono projects for organizations including the Innocence Project and Human Rights First, and personally secured asylum for a Gambian refugee persecuted for speaking out against his government. Outside of the firm, she served as co-chair of Sanctuary for Families' Pro Bono Council LGBT committee. Between this and her pro bono endeavors, she realized her desire to work directly with indigent and minority clients. 

 She received her J.D. from Boston University, where she became interested in poverty and constitutional law issues and worked as research assistant for a renowned Fourth Amendment scholar, assisting with projects related to racial profiling and illegal searches and seizures. Ms. Trivedi graduated from New York University with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications.
