Cleveland Marshall Alumni Association Community Outreach


On June 24, 2017, the Firm’s principal, Keith Weiner, volunteered along with other Cleveland Marshall graduates to provide legal advice and counsel to individuals and families living in the City of Cleveland.  The event was sponsored by the Social Outreach Committee of the Cleveland Marshall Law Alumni Association and the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland.  Marshall Grads with experience in numerous legal areas, such as landlord-tenant or domestic relations, were on hand to provide advice and counsel and in some cases accept pro-bono referrals.  Keith Weiner was able to help a few folks with debtor/creditor issues.  The event was organized by Cleveland Magistrate Pablo Castro who serves as the Chair Person of the Social Outreach Committee.  All in all it was a great event.  The Cleveland residents who received counsel were very appreciative and the Cleveland Marshall graduates receive the reward of helping others.
