Jonah Freedman, J.D. ’14, accepted the Pro Bono Project’s 2015 Distinguished Service Award at a reception held December 9th. Freedman works at the Loyola Incubator Program. He helped clients across a broad range of issues -custody, divorce, wills and powers of attorney, child support, tort defense, and a complex fight over real estate involving a questionable transfer of title and usufructuary rights. Jonah also brought a case to the Project, an eviction for a Spanish-speaking client. In 2015, Jonah took on a dozen cases and contributed over 150 hours to his work.
Freedman says, “As a new lawyer, I think my pro bono cases allow me to sharpen my legal skills, and get the much-needed client appreciation to keep me going. I’m positive that no matter how successful I become, pro bono work will always be a part of my professional career."
