Stern Crawford Give Back

The Stern Crawford team performs pro bono work with the Andy and Gwen Stern Community Lawyering Clinic at TRK Drexel Law, which allows law students to take on various projects to meet the community’s legal needs.

Stern, Crawford and senior associate Paznokas are currently volunteering their time with a case involving the theft of a family home via forged deed, a sadly prevalent crime in Philadelphia. The defendants forged the plaintiff’s dead mother’s signature on the deed to her house and unlawfully took possession of the property, effectively displacing the rightful owner and destroying precious family possessions.  A portion of the case has already successfully settled, and another aspect of the case is expect to go to go to trial this fall.
