Taft partner Jill Friedman Helfman was honored as one of 11 attorneys named to the 56th Annual Society of Benchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. The ceremony's dinner gala was held on June 19.
The Society of Benchers was established in 1962 to give recognition to graduates of the Case Western Reserve University School of Law who have especially distinguished themselves in their professions and their communities and have thereby brought honor to the law school. Since its establishment, the society and its individual members have been models of scholarship, leadership, and dignity for law students, younger members of the bar, and the public. Each year the society inducts new members chosen on the basis of an extraordinary dedication to community welfare and an enduring commitment to the highest principles of the legal profession.
Helfman is a 1987 graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law. She serves as Co-Partner-In-Charge of Taft’s Cleveland office and as chair of Taft’s Domestic Relations group. Her practice focuses on family and divorce law, particularly in high net worth cases.
