Litigator Fuhrer Honored with Service Award

Lori Fuhrer is the recipient of a 2019 Peter Perlman Service Award from the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA).

Presented at the LCA’s 2019 Spring Conference & Celebration of Fellows earlier this month, the award is given for outstanding efforts in community service.

From the LCA’s website, “[t]he Peter Perlman Service Awards recognize Fellows of the Litigation Counsel of America and others within the legal profession who contribute in meaningful ways to society by giving back their time and resources in an effort to improve the lives of others.”

Lori has devoted her time and talents to serving her community for many years, often with a focus on women at their most vulnerable. She has helped to raise $1,000,000 to establish Courage House Women’s Recovery Center, a residential addiction treatment facility.

More recently, Lori has worked closely with the Legal Aid Society’s Tenant Advocacy Project to assist tenants – often women of limited means – who are being evicted from their homes.

“Community service is an essential part of our firm’s culture,” says Chris Weber, Kegler Brown Managing Director. “And we are proud and grateful to have exceptional attorneys like Lori Fuhrer setting the example for others to follow.”
