Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that Stanley Barsky and Jacob M. Oksman received the 2017 Legal Aid Society Pro Bono Publico Award for their outstanding service to The Legal Aid Society and its clients.

Barsky, a partner with Fox who handles a range of transactional and general advisory tax law matters, has a longstanding history of service to the Legal Aid Society. This is the fourth time he has received this prestigious award. Oksman, an associate in the firm’s Taxation and Wealth Planning group, is a first-time recipient.
The Legal Aid Society, a private, nonprofit legal services organization, handles 300,000 individual cases and matters annually and provides a comprehensive range of legal services in civil, criminal and juvenile rights matters.
