Fair Change lawyer wins Notable Woman Award

Congratulations to Fair Change supervising lawyer, Jessyca Greenwood, founder & partner of Greenwood Lam LLP, for receiving Notable Life's Notable Woman Award!

Notable Life says:

"When Jessyca started working in the Criminal Law field she quickly identified how the mentally ill accused were the most vulnerable in the system, and without an advocate to stand up for them their Charter protected rights and their right to participate in the process were easily trammelled."

"Jessyca is committed to assisting the those with mental health issues and special needs in the justice system. She sits on a number of committees and advocacy groups dedicated to assisting these groups and supervises a pro bono law clinic committed to assisting street-involved defendants with tickets they have received as a result of pan handling and other minor provincial offences."

Congratulations, Jessyca!
