Full bio: Luke Condon is a staff attorney with The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland. Condon works with the Housing Team, specifically in the “Right to Counsel” (RTC) unit, where he represents indigent tenants facing eviction in the city of Cleveland. Luke joined Legal Aid in June of 2021. Condon graduated from Alma College in 2016. After undergrad, he went to law school at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, Ohio. While in law school, he participated in the Student Public Interest Law Fellowship (SPILF), and Mock Trial. He also had the opportunity to work as a volunteer law clerk with The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, Legal Services of South Central Michigan (LSSCM), and The Lake County Public Defender’s office. After graduating law school and passing the bar in 2019, Condon started his legal career with Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (SEOLS), in Steubenville Ohio. While with SEOLS, Luke worked as a generalist in several civil areas, including housing law, family law, public benefits, and consumer law. Some of his proudest achievements at SEOLS included fair housing work, where he helped file reasonable accommodations, to ensure that disabled tenants enjoyed an equal opportunity to use and enjoy their home. Condon believes that decent housing is a human right, and that justice demands that individuals have access to competent legal representation, regardless of their ability to pay for it.
