R&G Legal Prep

Thank you to attorneys from Ropes & Gray who volunteered at the Legal Prep Community Law Clinic on Tuesday, April 10th. PILI’s Alumni Network Leadership Council collaborates with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS) and Legal Prep Charter Academies to host a monthly community-based clinic for the student families and neighbors of Legal Prep in the Garfield Park neighborhood. PILI invites law firms and corporations to “adopt” a clinic date with attorneys from the firm who serving as pro bono attorneys at the clinic.

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers: Jamie Darch, Reginald Guy II, Lisa McJohn, Rebekah Newman, Lizzy Noonan-Pomada, Kelly Pendergast, William Schoenfeld, Amanda Seitz, Patrick Valenti, Josef Weimholt. They assisted clients with  property dispute, workman’s compensation claim, and wills and estates issues.

PILI coordinates this monthly clinic, typically held on the first Tuesday of each month. If you are interested in hosting or your firm is interested in adopting a clinic date, please contact PILI Program Manager Brent Page by email or by phone at 312-832-5128.
