Great Loss to the Immigration Justice Project

Dear Friends,

Bob was an incredibly enthusiastic and helpful member of the Advisory Board of the American Bar Association Immigration Justice Project. He willingly reached out to dozens of his colleagues as part of the Fundraising Committee, and took on direct representation of pro bono clients himself through the Project. We will greatly miss his leadership, enthusiasm and friendship.

To honor Bob’s contributions, we will be creating an award in his honor for the outstanding pro bono attorney of the year. The first annual Robert Gerber Memorial Award for Outstanding Pro Bono Service by an Individual Attorney will be awarded to a deserving pro bono attorney at our fall event this year.

Ginger Jacobs
Advisory Board of the Immigration Justice Project
