LAF is very grateful that over the years, more than one LAF attorney who left the agency to join a firm has gone to work for Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, and we know it’s because they’re fighting the good fight, too. LAF is grateful to the firm for its continued investment in our work, including their sponsorship of our upcoming Justice is Served event.
In our latest installment highlighting our 2015 Justice is Served event sponsors, we decided our YPB member Caryn Lederer, a partner with Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd., said everything better than we could say ourselves:
One of the reasons that I joined the YPB (other than the fact that LAF itself is so important) is because I previously worked for a legal services organization in New York supporting the direct service attorneys by litigating class action lawsuits on behalf of public benefit recipients, immigrants, people with disabilities and consumers. Though Hughes Socol is very committed to these issues, it was important to me to stay connected to the legal services community.
I serve on the YPB Board because LAF provides vital services to Chicago’s most vulnerable residents. LAF’s talented attorneys and staff literally change lives every day. As someone who is deeply committed to working to ensure that all people have equal access to justice, supporting LAF was a natural choice. I am proud to raise funds for LAF and to serve as a spokesperson for the YPB, engaging support from the Chicago legal community for LAF’s very important work.
Caryn’s dedication and involvement with the YPB is invaluable to us, and we are very grateful to have her as our ambassador. Thank you Caryn, for joining our community and being so generous of your time and support!
Justice is Served 2015 will be held on April 10 at The Tortoise Club, featuring live entertainment from John Wade Jazz and a silent auction. Tickets for the evening are $150 and can be purchased here. All proceeds from the evening benefit LAF in its mission to provide free legal services to people living in poverty across the Chicagoland area. Learn more about LAF at www.lafchicago.org.
