Rebecca Maurer is an emerging leader in student loan law and policy.
She is a graduate of the University of Chicago and Stanford Law School, which she attended after seeing the effects of the foreclosure crisis on her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. She narrowed her interest to student loan law when she saw the difficulties she and her classmates encountered in managing their own debt.
In 2014 she published her first article on student loan and bankruptcy issues. In 2015 she helped design and implement a student loan calculator available in the iOS App Store. She has worked on consumer and student loan cases at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLC and the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland. Rebecca was a federal clerk for Judge James Gwin in the Northern District of Ohio from 2015-2016.
Rebecca is the author of the Student Loan Law chapter of the forthcoming 2018-2019 edition of Ohio Consumer Law, published by Thomson Reuters. She continues to consult and write on a variety of student loan and consumer debt issues.
As owner and founder of Maurer Law LLC, Rebecca focuses her practice on student loan law and pro bono housing and consumer law representation in collaboration with community organizations in the Cleveland area.
Rebecca is admitted to practice law in Ohio, the District of Columbia, the Northern District of Ohio, the Southern District of New York and the Sixth Circuit.
