Jones Foster is proud to announce that Firm Board Member and Litigation & Dispute Resolution Shareholder Peter A. Sachs has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County for a 3-year term.
The Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County was founded in 1949 with a mission of providing equal access to our judicial system to qualified and low-income residents and non-profits in Palm Beach County. The range of services now offered to the community extends beyond the dispensing of free legal advice, and includes the administration of diverse programs that address many of life’s most basic needs: a safe home, enough food to eat, a quality education, and protection against exploitation and discrimination. Jones Foster is a sponsor of the annual Pro Bono Recognition Evening.
Peter is actively involved in various industry and community organizations, serving on the Board of Directors for the Alzheimer’s Community Care organization and as Chair of the Planned Giving Committee for the Trustbridge Hospice Foundation.
