Emily is volunteering through Junior League with “Leader Within”, a group mentoring program operating at the Excel Academy in East Boston, designed to support girls’ leadership skills through team building, writing, art-related projects, field trips, and community service.
Karen Levitt and Andrea Wells worked together to write an article about the mandatory disclosure rule in New Hampshire domestic relations matters and how they might be used to reduce discovery in other areas, particularly in disputes about possible inheritances and disclosure of the assets of family members.
The article entitled, “The Intersection of the Mandatory Initial Self-Disclosure Rule with Disclosure of Interest in Trusts and/or Inheritances,” was published in the New Hampshire Bar Journal, Summer 2012 issue.
Emily Weber has been selected as co-chair of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council Tri-River practice group. The practice group is an interdisciplinary peer group that meets monthly at the office of the Levitt Law Group to share information regarding Collaborative Law and best practices.

In 2012, Andrea Wells teamed up with her son and his school to raise money for the El Mundo Mejor orphanage in the Dominican Republic.
Many children in the Dominican Republic are orphaned for reasons of poverty and the loss of parents to AIDS, and organizing a fund raiser to help provide essential supplies such as clothing and food was a small way to help the children in the orphanage. Next time they hope to be able to deliver the money and supplies in person.
