Congratulations to Our Newest JEP Grads!

Last week the CBF Justice Entrepreneurs Project celebrated the graduation of the June 2021 JEP cohort, the seventeenth cohort of participants to complete the 18-month program. This year’s graduates include Lee Ayers, Daniel Bruce, Amanda Carey, Daniel Johnson, and Aaron Korson. All five lawyers have built socially conscious law firms and innovative businesses that offer valuable, cost-effective legal services to the underserved middle market.

The Law Office of Lee A. Ayers and the Johnson Justice Center are committed to providing quality legal services and uprooting social injustice by supporting individuals who have been impacted by the criminal justice system. Both firms offer criminal defense and record relief services.

Bruce Law offers services in the areas of intellectual property, small business law, and contracts.

The Carey Center for Justice guides clients with family and criminal defense issues through the legal resolution process. The firm embodies JEP core principles by offering different levels of service and transparent pricing, both of which are designed to ease client concerns about cost and process.

Aaron Korson’s firm, Chicago Family Attorneys, provides advice and legal counsel to individuals and families from all backgrounds, focusing on family law, divorce, child custody, immigration, probate, guardianship, estate planning, wills, and trusts.

Please join in congratulating these newly minted JEP alumni for the practices they have built. They join a growing network of dedicated lawyers providing accessible and cost-effective legal services to everyday people and small businesses in our community. If you know anyone who needs quality, cost-effective legal assistance in any of these practice areas, please consider referring them to the JEP network!
