Melissa Hoffer is a lawyer specializing in environmental law. She
is currently the New Hampshire Advocacy Center Director for the
Conservation Law Foundation. Hoffer graduated from Northeastern
University's School of Law in 1998. She was previously with the law
firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr from 1999 to 2007, and
promoted to a junior partner there in 2003. She traveled with a
team to Guantanamo Bay detainment camp to volunteer their services
to the Algerian Six. On January 7, 2007, the Boston Globe published
an article by Hoffer about her Guantanamo clients. Hoffer
represents the "Algerian Six." For a profile for Northeastern's
Alumni magazine Hoffer compared her clients cases with the landmark
civil rights cases of Brown v. Board of Education, key to
African-Americans getting equal access to education opportunities
and Korematsu v. United States, a key case fought for the rights of
Americans of Japanese descent, interned during World War 2.
