PRO BONO HEROES

Mark Neuberger, Esq., Pro Bono Hero
Foley & Lardner LLP

Mark Neuberger has been a tremendous advocate in Dade Legal Aid’s Child Advocacy Project. Always at the ready to accept the latest case, Mark worked tirelessly for years for the children he represented directly, as well as the many other children his colleagues assisted by way of his referral to other attorneys in his firm. Mark’s pro bono caseload included a 5 year old girl removed from her family due to domestic violence and a teenage girl who was on run away status often and needed to be assisted through the extended foster care program. Additionally, under his recommendation and guidance, Foley & Lardner attorneys handled 10 cases through the Child Advocacy Project for children facing such issues as schizophrenia, psychotropic medication consent, adoption, and developmental disability diagnoses. Their team of attorneys coordinated through Mark volunteered hundreds of hours toward the health and safety of our community’s children. Perhaps most notably, beyond his legal talents so generously donated to the dependency court system, Mark is an unwavering friend and supporter of Dade Legal Aid. We are incredibly grateful for his support and friendship. Thank You!!!
