The Philadelphia Bar Foundation recently announced that Tad LeVan will receive the 2016 Pro Bono Award at the Foundation's Annual Benefit to be held on November 5, 2016. The Pro Bono Award of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation is given annually to a Philadelphia law firm or corporate legal department that performs outstanding volunteer efforts in providing legal services to those in need. The award recipient demonstrates commitment to the development and delivery of pro bono legal services in the region and contributes significantly to innovative approaches to the delivery of volunteer legal services.
The Foundation selected Tad "because of his extraordinary commitment over 15 years to pursuing a pro bono case that mushroomed into a massive, precedent-setting constitutional victory benefiting tens of thousands of disadvantaged Pennsylvanians."
