Kaitlyn Fydenkevez and Grace Stewart Appointed to Legal Services Corporation’s Emerging Leaders Council
Quarles & Brady attorneys Kaitlyn Fydenkevez and Grace Stewart have joined the Legal Services Corporation’s (LSC) Emerging Leaders Council (ELC). The ELC is a group of up-and-coming leaders who work to increase awareness of the civil legal aid crisis in the United States and LSC's crucial work to address the justice gap.
Fydenkevez, a member of the firm’s Health & Life Sciences Practice Group in Washington, D.C., and Stewart, a Madison-based member of the Intellectual Property Practice Group, have played an integral role as part of the Quarles team providing counsel to the LSC Rural Justice Task Force and assisted in the task force’s efforts to examine and report on the justice gap in rural America and identify solutions to address this significant issue.
LSC, created by an act of Congress in 1974 as an independent nonprofit corporation, is the largest funder of civil legal aid and supports an essential American value – equal justice. It is a grant-making organization funded by Congress, and the vast majority of its congressional appropriation goes out in grants to eligible nonprofit organizations delivering civil legal aid.
