Attny Hupy: Pledges $100,000.00 to Milwaukee justice center

Milwaukee, WI – (March 29th, 2012) Attorney Michael Hupy has pledged $100,000.00 to the Milwaukee Justice Center (MJC) to provide legal services to those who can not afford a lawyer. Hupy is a founding member of the MJC located at the Milwaukee County Courthouse.

The MJC, a public service project created by the Milwaukee Bar Association in partnership with MarquetteUniversityLawSchool and MilwaukeeCounty, utilizes volunteers to address the unmet legal needs of MilwaukeeCounty’s low-income unrepresented litigants.

Through volunteer lawyers, paralegals, and MarquetteUniversity 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. The center’s goal is to provide basic legal information and referrals.

The MJC is on track to provide services to over 10,00 clients this year. The Center recently expanded its hours of operation to service increasing demand. Hours and service information is amiable on the MJV website, www.milwaukeejusticecenter.com.

Attorney Hupy states, “There are times when duty calls and we must step up to the plate for the public good to fulfill our professional obligations. I have pledged to donate $100,000.00 to the Milwaukee JusticeCenter so the less fortunate can have access to the legal system.” Hupy was recognized by Jim Temmer, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Bar Association, for his generous pledge as well as for his leadership in promoting the public service effort.

Michael Hupy and the law firm of Hupy and Abraham, S.C. is committed to philanthropy. In 2011, the firm donated over $150,000 to more then 100 community organizations.
