MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA — Hamburg, Rubin, Mullin, Maxwell & Lupin announced that William G. Roark has been elected President of the Board of Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania (LASP).

Roark, who serves as Managing Partner at the firm and teaches as an adjunct professor at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law, has a longstanding commitment to LASP. He emphasized the importance of giving back to the community. “LASP serves a vital role in this community,” Roark said. “As attorneys, we have an obligation to give back. I feel privileged to be in a position to help and it is a priority of mine to assist this great nonprofit organization in further serving our community.”

LASP’s mission is to provide free legal representation to low-income and vulnerable individuals in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties. The organization works to increase access to the courts and to change practices and systems that exacerbate poverty. It offers assistance in areas such as family law, domestic violence protection, landlord-tenant disputes, eviction, foreclosure, elder law, consumer law, and public benefits.

C. Shawn Boehringer, Executive Director of LASP, praised Roark’s dedication and leadership. “It’s been a pleasure to work with Bill over the last six years in his capacity as Secretary, Treasurer, and Vice-President of LASP’s Board of Directors,” Boehringer said. “He has always been available for consultation and has successfully taken on meaningful leadership roles. I am excited to work with Bill as our President. His prudent approach, energy, intelligence, and enthusiasm for LASP’s mission make him the perfect individual to lead the Board.”
