SIDEBAR FEATURE

An EPIC Success
A

s the 6-month pilot phase of the groundbreaking
Eviction Prevention and Intervention Coalition (EPIC)
draws to a close, plans for its continued success are
enthusiastically underway. January 9, 2018 marked the launch
of the pilot project designed to stabilize vulnerable Montgomery
County families and individuals facing eviction by providing
them with free legal representation and social services on the day
of their eviction hearings. EPIC is the result of a collaboration
between the Montgomery Bar Association, Montgomery Bar
Foundation, Montgomery County courts, The Montgomery
County Foundation, Montgomery County Office of Housing
and Community Development/Your Way Home, and Legal Aid
of Southeastern Pennsylvania. The seeds of this program were
planted just a little over a year ago as a result of conversations that
grew from the Montgomery Bar Foundation's first Access to Justice
Summit; less than 6 months into its launch, EPIC has received
statewide and national attention and, most importantly, helped
many vulnerable Norristown residents remain in their homes.
Without the generosity and commitment of Montgomery
Bar Association volunteers, the program could never have gotten
off the ground. Special recognition, and deepest appreciation, is
due to attorney Patricia M. Hampson, Esq., who has volunteered
every Tuesday since the program's launch and is committed to
remaining involved for the foreseeable future. Elaborating on
the value of this volunteer opportunity for our members, Pat
notes, "A new or experienced practitioner gets intense training on
managing attorney-client communications in real-time, as well
as actual think-on-your-feet courtroom experience. If we can get
both experienced and new attorneys at the same time, it's a terrific
opportunity to network and mini-mentor for an afternoon."
Other volunteers who have covered multiple EPIC shifts are
Manrico A. Troncelliti, Jr., Esq.; Joseph P. Lynch, Esq.; David
Napiorski, Esq.; Joshua Camson, Esq.; Judith P. Stutman Izes,
Esq.; and Lauren Elyse Otero, Esq. The following individuals each generously provided
their services for one shift: Christina Cozzetto, Esq.; David K. Bifulco, Esq.; Donald J.
Gimpel, Esq.; Donald Strumpf, Esq.; Jimmy C. Chong, Esq.; Kathryn M. Palladino,
Esq.; Lauren A. Hughes, Esq.; Michael J. Lyon, Esq.; Pamela Cunningham, Esq.;
Samantha A. Magee, Esq.; and Scott E. Miller, Esq. In addition to MBA volunteers,
