The Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project’s (VLP) Annual Gala celebrates and honors the work of extraordinary individuals who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to serving the public good and equal justice. In the coming year, on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, the VLP will celebrate its 28th Annual Gala – the organization’s premier fundraising event – at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and proudly honor Jeffrey B. Gewirtz, Executive Vice President of Business Affairs and Chief Legal & Compliance Officer, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment and Jonathan Stoler, Partner, Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP. Funds raised strengthen the vital work of the VLP, including direct legal services, innovative legal education and outreach programs in consumer debt, foreclosure, immigration, family law and elder law as well as the training and supervision of volunteer attorneys from the private bar to assist thousands of Brooklyn families and individuals facing life-altering legal challenges.
