VOLS Honors Phil Goldstein for Outstanding Pro Bono Service

June 24, 2021

Volunteers of Legal Services (VOLS) named McGuireWoods New York counsel Philip Goldstein to its 2021 Dean’s List: VOLS Pro Bono Stars. Honorees were recognized during a virtual awards ceremony June 17, 2021.

Goldstein, who has served as pro bono co-leader for McGuireWoods’ New York office for more than 10 years, is cited for his “unwavering commitment to pro bono service,” which “strengthened during the pandemic.”

Over the past year, he led the New York office’s participation in VOLS’ COVID-19 Frontline & Healthcare Workers Initiative, an estate planning project for low-income healthcare workers. Goldstein personally handled matters and supervised and mentored other volunteer attorneys. He also coordinated the office’s participation in the Pro Bono Institute’s Financial Institution Pro Bono Day, partnering with VOLS on another estate planning clinic.

VOLS, a nonprofit organization, partners with law firms, companies and community-based groups to provide free, civil legal services to New Yorkers in underserved communities.
