Veterans Clinic Alumni Scholarship Winners for Spring 2019

May 20, 2019

The Thomas Jefferson Veterans Legal Assistance Clinic has announced the winners of Alumni Scholarships for the Spring 2019 semester.  They are Jodi Peters and Maria Gabriella Russo.  Ms. Peters graduated this spring, and will now begin studying for the bar exam.  She did excellent work on behalf of her struggling veteran clients in areas of the law including military discharge upgrades, VA benefits, and criminal records expungments.  Ms. Russo just completed her second year of law school, and will return to Thomas Jefferson for her final year in the fall.  Ms. Russo also did outstanding work on behalf of her clients, handling a number of cases in the family law area.  In recent years, the Thomas Jefferson Alumni Association has donated the proceeds from its annual golf tournament to fund these scholarships which are awarded to the outstanding student(s) in the Veterans Clinic each semester.  Congratulations to Jodi and Gabriella for your important and high quality work!
