FactorLaw is proud to announce that our colleague, Elizabeth Peterson, was awarded the David S. Yen Bankruptcy Help Desk Volunteer of the Year for the Northern District of Illinois

Legal Aid Chicago’s nomination of Elizabeth describes her significant contributions to the Help Desk at the Chicago Bankruptcy Court, noting that “Liz has been an active volunteer since January of 2019. Liz has truly shown her dedication to the Bankruptcy Help Desk throughout this past year. Liz is consistent and reliable, and this did not change when the Desk was forced to go remote. Indeed, once COVID hit and we were forced to restructure the Desk, Liz embraced the changes and started serving an even higher number of clients. Liz is often the first to sign up every month, and she consistently steps up to support the Desk when we need additional volunteers. She is thorough and skilled when assisting clients. In sum, Liz has been an invaluable asset to the Desk during these very difficult times.”
