    Justine Rousseau headshotProBonoNet highlighted VLP Family Law Volunteer Justine Rousseau as this month’s Volunteer Spotlight. Read as she shares her insights about volunteering with Brooklyn Volunteer Lawyers Project. In addition to some great advice for law students & recent graduates, and the “great power” and “great responsibility” of pro bono work, we encourage you to check it out if you are interested in gaining courtroom experience in family law, but are not quite sure whether you have the “right” expertise. Thank you to our friends at Pro Bono Net for the feature, and thank you Justine, for your dedicated commitment to assisting those in need!

    See the Recognition Event featured in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

    On Tuesday, December 1st, 2015 we celebrated the outstanding efforts of the volunteers who have enabled the VLP to provide critically-needed legal services to low-income Brooklyn residents in 2014-2015.

    In addition to recognizing the many legal professionals who volunteered with the VLP this year, we presented the Terri and Nick Letica Award for Outstanding Support of Pro Bono to Lawrence F. DiGiovanna, and the Christopher Slattery Young Professional Award to Anna Yasova.

    Thank you to our dedicated volunteers and supporters for making the 2015 Volunteer Recognition Event a very special evening. We are grateful to all of the wonderful individuals who have helped us make a positive impact on the Brooklyn community.
