JEPY Awards Celebrate Innovation

February 11, 2020

Stars of the CBF Justice Entrepreneurs Project, friends, supporters and community partners gathered February 10th at Lagunitas Taproom & Brewery to celebrate innovative practices, expanded access to legal services, and lawyering with panache. The 4th Annual JEPY Awards, created by former JEP Director Trevor Clarke, honored the great work JEP attorneys are doing, recognizing attorneys exemplifying core JEP principles like set pricing, customized (unbundled) services, leveraging technology, and embracing the risk of failure. Congratulations to this year’s winners!
