Milwaukee Attorney Michael Hupy Donates $50,000 to Milwaukee Justice Center
He has already donated $100,000 to help transform MJC from an idea into a reality.
Milwaukee, WI – (September 2, 2015) On Tuesday, September 1, 2015, Hupy and Abraham, S.C. president, Attorney Michael Hupy, presented a $50,000 check to the Milwaukee Justice Center (MJC). Jim Temmer, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Bar Association, acted as the check’s recipient.
“The legal profession exists for the benefit of the public,” said Attorney Hupy. “I am very proud of the contributions of the Milwaukee Justice Center volunteers who provide legal services to those who would otherwise not have access to it and am happy to be able to help.”
Attorney Hupy is a founding member and the principal benefactor of the MJC. He has already donated $100,000 to help transform MJC from an idea into a reality.
MJC is a partnership between the Milwaukee Bar Association, Milwaukee County and Marquette University Law School. As its mission states, the purpose of MJC is to “utilize volunteers to address the unmet legal needs of Milwaukee County’s low-income unrepresented litigants through court-based programs and legal resources.”
Located in the Milwaukee County Courthouse, MJC has helped over 20,000 people in the past two years. A majority of clients served have had incomes significantly below the poverty level.
