Blank Rome's Jeffrey Rosenthal Selected as 2015 Board Observer for Community Legal Services

Blank Rome Associate Jeffrey Rosenthal has been selected to serve as the 2015 Board Observer for Community Legal Services ("CLS") as part of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Board Observer Program. The Program is a partnership between the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, the Delivery of Legal Services Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association, and the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association. The Program gives young lawyers practicing in Philadelphia County the opportunity to learn more about local legal services organizations and other non-profits and the leadership skills necessary to serve on the boards of such organizations as well as succeed in their future careers.

CLS is an independent 501(c)(3) organization that provides free legal services, in civil matters, to low-income Philadelphians. Since its founding, CLS has served more than one million clients who could not afford to pay for legal representation and who would have faced a variety of devastating ends without dedicated, knowledgeable attorneys on their side.
