MacDonald Illig Attorney Receives Pro Bono Award
Jennifer Brostmeyer Hirneisen was awarded the Erie County Bar Association's Pro Bono Award at the 2008 annual Law Day luncheon. The award is given each year to a private practice attorney who has made a significant commitment to pro bono representation of low-income clients with civil cases in Erie County. Attorney Hirneisen provided 110 hours of free legal service to low-income clients in Erie County in 2007. She devoted the majority of her hours to a foreclosure action in which she negotiated a settlement that permitted her client to remain in a home at a reduced interest rate.
Attorney Hirneisen is an associate practicing in MIJB's Business and Transactional, Family Law and Real Estate practice groups.
