Thank You To Our Supporters

As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to force the shutdown of our city, support of this initiative was more important than ever before. The crisis continues to jeopardize the health and safety of some of our most vulnerable clients, including the homeless, the elderly, incarcerated individuals, and victims of domestic abuse.

We are proud to recognize those firms who have gone above and beyond, raising funds and awareness in support of our work. They will be featured in an ad in the New York Law Journal in the fall.
