Pat DiCarlo Named 2014 Grass Roots Justice Award Recipient by GA Justice Project

Pat DiCarlo of the ERISA Litigation Group has been honored with a 2014 Grass Roots Justice Award, presented by the Georgia Justice Project for his “groundbreaking, ongoing work in reducing collateral consequences of criminal records and providing quality counsel to veterans and others in need.” In 2008, DiCarlo wrote Collateral Consequences of Arrests and Convictions in Georgia to advocate for changes to the criminal justice system in Georgia and improve opportunities for those who have successfully completed criminal sentences.

Pat’s work has resulted in changes to the criminal justice system in Georgia. In addition to his pro bono work for the Georgia Justice Project, DiCarlo serves as part of the Emory Law Volunteer Clinic, providing pro bono legal service for Georgia military veterans in need of assistance regarding claims for service-connected disabilities filed with the Department of Veteran Affairs.

DiCarlo accepted the award at a ceremony held on April 24. Previous winners include Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin.
