Volunteer Spotlight: Rick Glickstein

Rick Glickstein, a Westchester-based solo practitioner, began volunteering with Pro Bono Partnership in 2020 and has quickly become one of our most prolific and valuable volunteers. In only a few years, Rick has already assisted Partnership clients with 22 legal matters ranging from developing corporate governance policies to reviewing complex contracts and drafting waivers and releases.

Partnership clients have described Rick’s advice as “invaluable,” and frequently request to work with him on subsequent legal matters. Judy Siegel, Senior Staff Attorney at Pro Bono Partnership, has worked alongside Rick since he began volunteering with the Partnership. Judy noted “Working with Rick is a pleasure. Rick always makes sure to understand our clients’ big picture, enabling him to provide comprehensive solutions that are applicable, practical and actionable. As a result of his many years of experience, Rick not only listens to what our clients are saying, but also hears what they are telling him – a subtle distinction that allows Rick to provide the most bespoke advice.”

We are so grateful for Rick’s willingness to assist our clients and for the expert counsel that he provides. We look forward to continue working with Rick to empower nonprofits and strengthen our communities for many years to come!
