Before joining Patterson Harkavy in the fall of 2018, she was Assistant General Counsel at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in Washington, DC, where she supported the union’s national campaign organizing faculty and graduate students at higher education institutions. While at SEIU, Trisha represented workers and local unions before the National Labor Relations Board and state labor relations agencies in Illinois, Minnesota, Florida, Connecticut, Tennessee, and North Carolina. She also represented a local union in a federal voting rights case in Florida and helped write amicus briefs in high-profile cases before the Supreme Court, including Trump v.

Trisha regularly speaks on topics regarding labor unions, employment rights, and alternative strategies to advancing workers’ rights in the modern economy.
