Berkshire Magazine celebrates the most dedicated, most creative, and most influential members of the community. We are thrilled to announce that Eve’s tremendous work with Berkshire Center for Justice is being recognized and honored!
Eve Schatz exemplifies the motto “the pen is mightier than the sword,” wielding her words to redress injustices inflicted on the disenfranchised or anyone who cannot pay full attorney fees. Schatz, who worked on behalf of patients’ rights legislation and brought a polluter into compliance with DEP regulations in Great Barrington, quickly realized that to become an attorney would ready her to understand how the system works thereby rendering her a more effective advocate in the public interest arena. She is founder and director of the Berkshire Center for Justice, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary and is the only law firm in the area offering sliding-scale direct legal services and weekly free legal clinics.
