On October 23, Legal Services NYC hosted their Pro Bono Volunteer Reception 2014 at the offices of WilmerHale. Legal Services NYC welcomed several pro bono volunteers that helped make their efforts to assist over 700,000 low income New Yorkers possible. The reception paid tribute to their top 30 pro bono attorneys, top 10 pro bono law students, and top 10 Legal Services NYC advocates. Including speeches from attorneys and clients alike, the video presentation showcased the importance of fighting discrimination and helping to achieve equal opportunity and economic, social, and racial justice for all low-income New Yorkers.
Among the Top 30 Pro Bono Attorneys named by LSNYC was our very own Government Service & Public Interest Committee Co-Chair Katrina Goyco. Named among the Top 10 LSNYC Pro Bono Staff Advocates was Pro Bono & Community Service Co-Chair June Lee. The 2014 Pro Bono Honor Roll included Executive Director Yang Chen and Past President Sylvia Fung Chin (Partner, White & Case). President-Elect Will Wang represented AABANY. Thank you to Legal Services NYC for such an enjoyable night!
