Congrats to 2014 AMEC honoree, Jeffrey Gewirtz for being honored for supporting a pro bono community. “Nearly one in four residents in Brooklyn live in poverty, including 33 percent of families with young children. Five of the 10 poorest census tracts in the city are in Brooklyn. Brownsville has the highest concentration of public housing in the entire country. It is much of this population, of well over half a million residents, where the services provided by VLP are so critical. Jonathan Stoler was another respected attorney that received the same award added, “The VLP prepares and provides its staff and volunteer attorneys with the tools and the training that help with real-world legal issues that clients face every day. This group does extraordinary work for ordinary problems that anyone in this room could possibly face — a divorce, a child custody issue, a personal bankruptcy, credit card debt, a mortgage foreclosure and even estate planning. Real-world issues facing real people right here in our neighborhoods.” READ ARTICLE.
