NEWARK, NJ - Several prominent Montclair residents turned out for the Volunteer Lawyers for Justice (VLJ) gala held at the NJ Performing Arts Center in Newark on Oct. 20. 

The organization provides pro bono legal services to the economically disadvantaged. 

In July, VLJ opened an office at 80 Park St. in Montclair, which serves as an addition to its main office in Newark.

VLJ’s founder and executive director, Karen B. Sacks, said VLJ needed the extra office, given its rapid expansion in the past few years.

“When considering VLJ’s needs, meeting space for attorneys and clients outside of Newark was a priority, and with many volunteers and staff living in Montclair, Montclair was the ideal location for expansion,” Sacks said.
