8/1/2013 Articles

By Janice W. Reicher

Farella Braun + Martel celebrated its 50th anniversary last year by reaffirming its longstanding commitment to public service. This year, Farella has continued its tradition of service by joining the Justice & Diversity Center’s (JDC’s) Right to Civil Counsel Pilot Program under the leadership of partner Tony Schoenberg. Since January, Farella attorneys have worked hundreds of hours defending unlawful detainer cases, providing full-scope representation to tenants facing catastrophic evictions that have threatened to leave some homeless. The impact of the partnership between Farella and JDC has been significant and, at times, life-changing for the tenants, all of whom are indigent and/or recent immigrants.
