Thank you for helping us honor our dedicated 2014 volunteers!
Philadelphia VIP, the hub of pro bono legal services in Philadelphia, hosted its annual Awards Night to honor outstanding 2014 volunteers who provided pro bono services to Philadelphians at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre on Monday, March 16, 2015. Over 170 guests including members of the judiciary, attorneys, law students and legal administrators came to pay tribute to the great pro bono work accomplished by VIP volunteers in 2014.
Law firms of all sizes, businesses, and individual attorneys receive awards as a result of their extraordinary commitment to VIP, its clients and the community. In 2014, Philadelphia VIP’s pro bono attorneys and professional staff assisted in closing more than 2,800 cases for individuals, families and small businesses who could not afford attorneys and whose cases would not have been handled by other public interest organizations. The estimated value of the legal services provided in 2014 is more than $3,100,000. Over 1,000 volunteers responded to these requests to handle issues in a wide range of practice areas such as assisting individuals, nonprofits and small businesses maintain income during the economic downturn, supporting the stability of families, preventing homelessness amidst the housing crisis, promoting community economic development by investing in local communities, adoption processes, and zoning issues.
Congratulations to Philadelphia VIP's 2015 Award Winners!
