20 for 20 Corporate Challenge
This Spring, Bob Bertisch and Jason Lazarus, a litigation partner at Holland & Knight and a Board Member of the Legal Aid Society, started a new initiative called the 20 for 20 Legal Aid Corporate Challenge. The project is meant to help the Legal Aid Society in providing valuable pro bono services to residents of Palm Beach County. The focus of the project will be companies with legal staff in Palm Beach County. The project’s goal is to enlist 20 companies in Palm Beach County to commit each of their legal staff members to provide 20 hours of pro bono annually. There are currently multiple pro bono opportunities available for companies participating in the project, including Expulsion Hearings before the School Board, Guardian Advocates, and Immigration Clinics, with additional pro bono opportunities on the way.
