Attorney Michael Hupy Commended for Hard Work with the Milwaukee Justice Center
Attorney Michael Hupy recently received a letter from the American Bar Association (ABA) thanking him for his efforts to help establish and maintain the Milwaukee Justice Center (MJC). Attorney Hupy’s effort in aiding low income residents with legal matters has never been a more important issue. His excellent work and continued leadership has helped Milwaukee residents receive proper legal assistance.
ABA President Laurel Bellows sent a personal thank you letter to Attorney Hupy for his hard work within the community. She wishes the MJC continued success and thanked Attorney Hupy for his leadership and excellent work throughout the city of Milwaukee.
Attorney Hupy pledged $100,000 in 2012 to the MJC to provide legal services to those who cannot afford a lawyer. Attorney Hupy is a founding member of the MJC, which is located at the Milwaukee County Courthouse.
The MJC, a public service project created by the Milwaukee Bar Association in partnership with Marquette University Law School and Milwaukee County, uses volunteers to address the unmet legal needs of Milwaukee County's low-income, unrepresented individuals.
Through volunteer lawyers, paralegals, and Marquette University law students, the MJC operates a self-help desk to assist in completion of legal forms as well as a legal clinic offering information and referral services.
