Monday, December 3rd 2012

This years' prestigious Law Society Excellence Award for 'Solicitor of the Year - In House' was awarded to Paul Herron from Hackney Community Centre for his work with vulnerable homeless people.

Nominated for his advice to marginalised people who do  not use mainstream legal services, Paul gratefully received the award  not only for his own work, but as acknowledgement for the "hard work and commitment to social justice" demonstrated by everyone at the Law Centre.

Paul is currently setting up a new outreach service offering free legal advice and representation to vulnerable homeless people in Hackney.
