Additional Information

In 2013 Ms. Oliver, along with Meyer, Unkovic & Scott associate attorneys, led the development and launch of the Landlord Tenant Project, a program operated in conjunction with Neighborhood Legal Services and the Allegheny County Bar Foundation.  The Project provides free representation to individuals who have been denied Section 8 or public housing.  In addition, the Project represents those who need assistance to appeal a judgment of possession at an arbitration hearing.  The volunteer attorneys also staff a hotline, which provides advice to low-income tenants.

As a result of their efforts, the Allegheny County Bar Association honored the firm with its Organization Pro Bono Achievement Award in 2014, and in 2017 the firm received the Pro Bono Institute’s Corporate Pro Bono Award.
