United States: Henry Kent-Smith And Irina Elgart Receive Equal Justice Medals For Pro Bono Work
Last Updated: November 4 2014

Henry L. Kent-Smith and Irina B. Elgart received Equal Justice Medals during the 2014 annual Equal Justice Awards Reception. This prestigious honor is given for outstanding pro bono work performed on behalf of Legal Services of Northwest New Jersey.  

Henry and Irina assisted with a matter involving an attempt by the Township of Allamuchy to evict low-income tenants in township-owned affordable housing units. Through Fox's efforts, the team was able to negotiate a settlement whereby, among other things, the township filed a 30-year deed restriction, the affordable housing tenants remained in their apartments and the township revised its lease to conform with UHAC requirements for affordable apartments.  

Henry and Irina were presented with the award by former Chief Justice Deborah Poritz at a special ceremony on October 15 at the Bridgewater Marriott in Bridgewater, New Jersey.
