LAF Board Member Philip H. Corboy, Jr. to Host Second Annual Spring Bash!
The LAF Young Professionals Board is excited to announce that Philip Harnett Corboy, Jr. will be joining them on Friday, March 7, 2014 at Studio Paris, to serve as the special guest host for their Second Annual Spring Bash “Justice is Served.”
Flip Corboy is a partner at Corboy & Demetrio, P.C. concentrating his practice on plaintiff’s personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Mr. Corboy has been on the LAF Board of Directors since 1997, and was Board president from 2008 to 2010.
“Legal aid is important as long as our country believes in ‘equal justice for all.’ ” LAF, one of the premier legal aid agencies in the country, makes sure that those are not just words. “As lawyers, we can’t sit back and allow only the rich and well-represented classes in America to have access to the courts and our government,” says Corboy. “Any system of justice will be ultimately judged by how it treats the old, the sick and the poor. It is the mission of every LAF lawyer and staffer to help some of the most vulnerable people and groups in our community get the legal help they need to get back on their feet. The Young Professionals Board has done an outstanding job since its inception five years ago at helping to raise the resources LAF needs to serve its clients, and I speak for myself and my colleagues on the LAF Governing Board in praising their efforts.”
Festivities on March 7 include a silent auction, special photo booth fun with Actionbooth, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a premium open bar. Tickets for the special evening are $150 each, and are available for purchase here.
We look forward to seeing you March 7! Until then, you can see photos from last year's event here.
