"30 for 30" Pledge

Take the 30 for 30 Challenge! 

In honor of Philadelphia VIP’s 30th Anniversary, all attorneys and graduating law students were invited to take the “30 for 30” pledge.  By signing the pledge, you agree to perform thirty hours of pro bono service during VIP’s anniversary year (2011).

On October 27 2011 at the 2011 Pro Bono Publico Awards Ceremony of the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia VIP recognized two lawyers, Bella Schnall and Alfonso Madrid, both solo practitioners, and one law firm, Ballard Spahr LLP, for exemplifying the commitment the Philadelphia legal community has made to pro bono service during National Pro Bono Week.

Over 200 lawyers answered the call and pledged to provide more than 6,000 hours of pro bono service, which will result in more than $1.2 million dollars in free legal services to those most in need in our community. “This is a great accomplishment,” said Philadelphia VIP Executive Director Sara Woods, “not only for VIP, but for Philadelphians in need. VIP is proud support the drive and dedication of attorneys serving those most in need of legal services.”

Thank you for saying YES to access to justice for all!
