Jennifer M. Protas, a Hoge Fenton employment lawyer, headed up the firm's effort to support the 21st Annual Silicon Valley Walk for AIDS. Walking (in the rain) with other members of the firm and the legal community on behalf of the Santa Clara County Bar Association's Rainbow Committee to benefit Health Legal Services*, Jenn and her team exceeded its goal!
*Health Legal Services provides free legal representation to low income individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Santa Clara County. HLS is the only legal assistance program in the county specializing in HIV/AIDS-related law, providing assistance to more than 300 clients each year in a wide range of legal practice areas: confidentiality, consumer protection, disability rights, discrimination, employment, estate planning, housing, and public/private health and income benefits.
