The Reception recognized those who generously donated their time and expertise in 2017 to help low income and vulnerable persons who otherwise could not afford an attorney and gain access to the civil justice system. The program also acknowledges law firms that support and encourage pro bono service.
It was a well attended reception and we are very proud of the many generous attorneys and non legal providers (including our Advisory Council Chair, Ellen Birch of Realtime Reporting) who were acknowledged with awards and certificates.
Jeffrey Seigel, Roberta Scoll, Susan Biller and Maria Dosso attended from NSLS.
Special thanks to staff: Paula Velasquez, Daniele Wilson, Shanna Butler (pro bono scholar) and Shaneyra Paulino (intern) who helped out at the registration table.
All of our offices are now open to the public and accepting walk-ins.
