???
As a child, Luc El-Art Severe enjoyed helping others, which made his decision to attend law school a natural fit for him. At just 27 years old, the third-generation Haitian-American has already received a bachelor?s degree in English from Morehouse College, a Juris Doctor from the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law, and a certificate in political science-mass media from Brown University. He is a member of the New York State, National and American Bar Associations, and a member of other local bar associations. ?I?ve always had a passion to serve my community and to address the community?s concerns, thus aspiring to be a ?servant of the people,?? Severe explains.

Severe is an agent of change in his role as the labor relations officer for a network of five hospital facilities within New York City Health & Hospital Corp. He promotes community advocacy and employee improvement. ?Whether it is?giving a second chance when employees have done wrong or ensuring that we are giving the patients optimal customer service in my role with HHC, I really enjoy what I do,? he affirms.

?

Severe remains active in his community. He is a member of the board of directors for Highlighting Success Inc., a nonprofit that promotes awareness of global contributions by African-American through panel discussions and scholarship fundraisers. He also volunteers with the Metropolitan Black Bar Association and is an engaged member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.

In his free time, he enjoys playing the violin, golfing and watching sports as he roots for his favorite baseball, football and basketball teams: the Yankees, Giants and Lakers, respectively. ?The world is a possibility if only you?ll discover it,? Severe likes to say, quoting the late African-American novelist, scholar and critic Ralph Waldo Ellison. Clearly, he has made these words an integral part of his practice.
