American Bar Association Section of Taxation announces Public Service Fellows
The American Bar Association Section of Taxation has selected its 2018-2020 Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellows:
- Evan Phoenix, a graduate of Saint Thomas University School of Law, will be working with the Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles, California, to provide tax education, advocacy, and representation on behalf of current military service members, veterans, and ESL (English as a second language) taxpayers.
- Andre Robinson, a graduate of Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, will be working with the Low-Income Tax Clinic at Southeast Louisiana Legal Services in New Orleans, Louisiana to provide education and tax services to taxpayers returning to society after being incarcerated, as well as to micro-business and small-business owners.
The Public Service Fellowship program was developed in 2008 to address the need for tax legal assistance, and to foster an interest in tax-related public service among those individuals who participate. In 2013, the Public Service Fellowship was re-named the Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship in honor of the late Christine A. Brunswick, the Section’s former Executive Director for over 20 years. Christine was a strong proponent of advancing public service efforts in tax law and fostering a fair and equitable tax system. Under her leadership, the Tax Section has devoted significant resources to further that goal.
