NSLS Pro Bono Attorneys win accolades!

Updated: Mar 3


Wendy Hamberger was chosen by the Nassau County Bar Association as the recipient of the Thomas Maligno Pro Bono Attorney of the Year award "in recognition of selfless commitment to the furtherance of the most noble traditions of the organized Bar." Wendy devotes hours of her time each week in our VLP assisting litigants in uncontested matrimonials. The celebration will take place at the NCBA's Law Day dinner on May 1, 2019.

Eve Nowak has been awarded the NYSBA President's Pro Bono Service Award for the 10th Judicial District. Since 2015, Eve has played a critical role in our Suffolk Pro Bono Project screening hundreds of pro bono applicants every year and giving advice on child support matters. Her generous assistance insures that the huge number of callers receive prompt attention and services, and in the appropriate cases, receive assignment to a pro bono attorney for full representation. The awards will be presented at the NYSBA awards ceremony in Albany on May 1, 2019.

Congratulations to both attorneys for their well deserved recognition!


We're committed to helping people in need vindicate their rights under the law.
