VLP staff attorneys are some of the best, and we can prove it.
The Massachusetts Lawyer Weekly named Family Law and Guardianship Supervising Attorney Geraldine Gruvis-Pizarro as a 2022 Top Women in Law recipient. "Geraldine is intelligent, diligent, and gifted in her work. Her analysis and case representation sets her clients up for success in the family law arena," Executive Director Joanna Allison said. "She has published a book and has been an exemplary parent of a differently abled child while also being a top-notch attorney. With her support, her child continues to achieve and grow. This is a difficult role to balance as a parent; protect them while sending them out to make their way. As with all that I have watched her do, Geraldine has mastered it."
The National Consumer Law Center Partners Council named Consumer and Bankruptcy Senior Attorney Colin Harnsgate this year's NCLC Rising Star. He will be recognized at their Annual Conference in Seattle this month. "I was struck by Colin's hard work, his commitment to his clients, his expertise in consumer law, and his ability to work with persons on all sides of the "v" said Justice of Massachusetts Supreme Court Ernest Sarason, who has invited Colin to be a part of the Executive Committee of the Access to Justice Commission to advocate for better services in the courts to low-income consumer case defendants.
We are honored to have such talents amongst us. Congratulations, Geraldine and Colin!
