Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & Perretti LLP is pleased to announce that the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program (“TVC”), a Washington D.C.-based non-profit assisting veterans with their appeals before the Court of Appeals for Veterans’ Claims, selected associate Joshua Carmel as the June Volunteer Inspiring Pro Bono (“VIP”). Each month the TVC recognizes a VIP, who is singled out for the exceptional work they did on behalf of the veterans that month. On the TVC feature story this month, Carmel explains what inspired him to take his first case for the TVC and what continues to drive his passion for pro bono work. Carmel notes Riker Danzig has a strong pro bono track record which allows him to “work as an associate in the Insurance and Reinsurance Group and serve pro bono clients too.” Click here for the full article.
