“[A]ny one who interacts with Ms. Fasanelli is extremely impressed with her passion, talent, intelligence and drive to better the lives of homeless people in our State,” said the nominating letter from the Maryland State Bar Association Section on the Delivery of Legal Services Council. “In the colloquial, she is a ‘rock star’ in the Maryland legal services world, and we are lucky to have her as part of our community.”
