9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Clinics Continue

by CBJC Staff May 9, 2012

On May 7th, the reopened 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) clinics continued at the City Bar Justice Center, with 50 lawyers from 12 firms and corporations helping potential claimants navigate the “road map” through the application process.

To date, over 100 potential claimants have been helped.

A dozen WilmerHale attorneys, led by City Bar Justice Center Board Chair Jay Holtmeier, staffed tables, as did half a dozen attorneys from DLA Piper, led by Heidi Levine.

The next VCF clinic will be on July 10th, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. For more information, email Melissa Stanger.
