Members of the Fayette County Bar Association, in partnership with the Southwestern Pennsylvania Legal Aid Society (the three-county Legal Services program serving Fayette County), provide free legal services to low-income individuals who are ineligible for legal aid for reasons other than income. The members of the local bar who presently are participating in this program include: Joseph M. George Jr., Susan Ritz Harper, Michelle Kelley, Russ Korner,
John H. Lowery III, Patrick C. McDaniel, Jeffrey S. Proden, Thomas Shaffer and Beverly Jean Ullein.
Participating lawyers receive a reduced fee for the services they provide, but the fee does not come from the clients. The necessary funding is provided by Legal Services Corporation through Southwestern Pennsylvania Legal Aid and is administered by the local bar. Local bar members presently responsible for program administration are Sheryl Heid and Bob Wetzel, who review service and fee requests. Rose Nypaver, secretary for attorney and program participant Susan Ritz Harper, provides the clerical services for the program. For more information on the Fayette County Conflicts Program, contact:
