BUFFALO, NY – Lee M. Redeye, an associate at Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP, recently received the Empire State Counsel Outstanding Pro Bono Volunteer Award through the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA), in recognition of his pro bono work completed in 2019.
Each year, the NYSBA acknowledges the exemplary pro bono work of two individual attorneys and several law firms as Empire State Counsel® honorees at the annual Justice for All Luncheon.
Last year, Mr. Redeye started a new initiative, partnering Lippes Mathias with the Volunteer Lawyers Project and Native American Community Services to launch Western New York’s first Native American Legal Assistance clinic. The monthly clinic is designed to help the Native community navigate complex and foreign courts so that they are not overwhelmed by the legal system. The clinic is staffed by volunteer attorneys from Lippes Mathias and a paralegal from Volunteer Lawyers Project.
At Lippes Mathias, Mr. Redeye focuses his practice on Indian law and general litigation matters. He is a member of the Seneca Nation of Indians.
