Robert Stern 
Stradley Ronon alumnus Robert J. Stern received the Justice William J. Brennan Jr. Award for solo practitioner by Philadelphia VIP at its Awards Ceremony. "Robert first partnered with VIP in 2019, and, since re-connecting with us last year, has taken on a number of complicated cases with gusto. He is a skilled multitasker, undaunted by working on multiple probate cases at once. He excels at issue-spotting and navigating sticky situations for his clients, and his responsiveness and thoroughness place him among VIP's most reliable volunteers. Through his pro bono service, Robert is helping address and area of critical need for legal services." Congrats, Bob!
