Foster Garvey PC follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.
On August 27, 2009, Garvey Schubert Barer was one of eight firms honored by Jewish Family Service of Seattle with an Outstanding Service Award in recognition of work for the Holocaust Ghetto Workers Reparations Project. Garvey Schubert Barer associate Michelle Rosenthal has joined with others in providing pro bono legal services for the Seattle branch of the project. In 2007 the German chancellor announced the creation of the Ghetto Work Payment Program, which offers a one-time payment of 2,000 Euro (approx. $2,600 USD) to Holocaust survivors who performed involuntary labor in Nazi-controlled ghettos during World War II. Approximately 60,000 survivors may be eligible for these payments. To help these survivors, Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles collaborates with law firms across the nation to organize legal clinics and train volunteer lawyers to properly prepare the forms. As of August 2009, Seattle volunteer lawyers have helped over 40 survivors submit applications for reparations.
