Miami, FL - At the May 1st's 2015 Annual Awards Luncheon, Bilzin Sumberg Business Finance & Restructuring Partner, Jeffrey I. Snyder, was presented with a Special Recognition Award by Dade Legal Aid/Put Something Back for his dedication as a member of Dade Legal Aid/Put Something Back's inaugural 2015 Leadership Academy. Members of the 2015 Leadership Academy were selected based upon their professional experience, leadership, and service to the community and were introduced by Chief Judge Bertila Soto of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit at the Reach for the Stars Luncheon on January 30th. Dade Legal Aid/Put Something Back provides a safety net of legal services to the neediest residents of Miami-Dade County, with the common goal of assisting vulnerable populations and families living in poverty without means to hire an attorney.

In 2014, Jeffrey was one of only eight bankruptcy attorneys nationwide named a “Rising Star" by Law360, a top attorney under 40 whose accomplishments belie his age.
