MFY Legal Services Establishes Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler Fellowship

February 1, 2005

MFY Legal Services, Inc. recently established a "Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler Fellowship" at MFY in honor of our pro bono contributions in New York City. MFY will select the Fellow, who will serve for a two-year period beginning in the fall of 2005. The Patterson Belknap Fellow will provide free civil legal assistance to disadvantaged clients and address areas of emerging legal need for underserved New Yorkers. It is anticipated that the Fellow will bring targeted litigation in support of adult home and nursing home reform, as well as broader disability and equality issues.
