Amy Gellatly, Attorney

Amy Gellatly is an attorney on the PJC’s Workplace Justice Project, where she represents low-wage workers in wage-theft litigation, does know-your-rights outreach in partnership with community organizations, and advocates for legislation to better protect workers’ rights.

Prior to joining the PJC, Amy was a supervising attorney on the movement lawyering practice at Bread for the City in Washington, DC. In that capacity, she collaborated with tenant-led community groups organizing to build power and transform the housing landscape in DC. Over her seven years at Bread for the City, she successfully represented hundreds of tenants fighting displacement and substandard housing conditions.
