Taisha Sturdivant focuses her practice on a wide range of affordable housing and community development issues, including public housing/mixed-finance development, New Markets Tax Credits, and Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.

Taisha earned her J.D. from Boston College Law School. There she was a research assistant to Professor Mark S. Brodin, and a student advocate in the Juvenile Rights Advocacy Project and Civil Litigation Clinic. While at Boston College Law School, Taisha was the recipient of the Honorable Justice Roderick L. Ireland Leadership and Juvenile Advocacy Award, Dean’s Award for Diversity, and Ruth-Arlene W. Howe Black Student Initiative Award. She was also recognized as one of her law school’s Public Interest Designation Fellows, for her commitment to pro bono and public service work.

Prior to joining Klein Hornig, Taisha served as a Guest Op-Ed Columnist at the Boston Globe, and interned in the chambers of U.S. District Judges Denise Casper, Mark Wolf, and Nancy Gertner (ret.). Taisha’s dedication to affordable housing and community development has roots in her residence and activism in many of Boston’s strained neighborhoods. Her interest was cemented by her work during law school. Notably, Taisha interned at the Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH), where she reviewed transactional agreements, researched and drafted memoranda on a plethora of affordable housing matters, and co-led an organization-wide corporate policy and operational procedures training for POAH employees.
