43rd Annual Servant of Justice Awards Dinner

The annual Servant of Justice Awards Dinner is the sole fundraising benefit of the year in support of our Civil Practice, which unlike our Criminal Defense and Juvenile Rights Practices which are right to counsel, relies on the generosity of New York City’s leading law firms and corporations and other private institutions and individuals. We are very grateful for the decades of support of these institutions and for their commitment to the vulnerable individuals and families of New York City.

As the first organization of its kind in the nation, we at The Legal Aid Society pride ourselves on providing our clients with the highest quality representation. Each year, we measure our success on the amount of cases handled, the number of clients assisted, and the number of cases where our case handlers receive a favorable result, and the impact of our law reform litigation efforts.

This year please join us as we honor:

BNY Mellon
Award Accepted by J. Kevin McCarthy
Senior Executive Vice President and General Counsel

Eric J. Friedman
Executive Partner
Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

We are also honored to dedicate this year’s awards dinner to the memory of Blaine V. “Fin” Fogg, our beloved President who passed away last year.
