Recent graduates Michael Krantz ‘12 and Morgan Williams ‘12 as well as Jennifer Perez were cited for their outstanding service in a release issued by the Philadelphia Bar Association.

“Morgan Williams has stood out as a champion in providing equal access to the law,” says the release, adding that she “has shown a significant commitment to public service throughout her four years at Widener Law and embodies the true spirit of pro bono service.”

The release praises Krantz for his work with the Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program, the Consumer Housing Unit, and the Guild Food Stamp Clinic, observing, “His interest in housing and poverty issues has been shaped by that experience.”

The Philadelphia Chapter of the ACLU and the Delaware Community Legal Aid Society nominated Jennifer Perez for the honor after she completed summer internships with the respective organization in successive summers. The release praises her “keen understanding of the needs of immigrant and disabled clients, often going beyond traditional legal work to ensure the fair treatment of immigrants.”

The entire Widener Law community congratulates Michael, Morgan, and Jennifer on the well-deserved honor!
