Barley Snyder Partner David Freedman Receives 3rd Light of Liberty Award

Published on

September 30, 2021

For Immediate Release


Lancaster, Pa. – 
For a third time, the Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Council has awarded Barley Snyder partner David Freedman its prestigious Light of Liberty award.

The award is bestowed annually on the organization’s top pro bono attorney. The Light of Liberty ceremony, which recognizes the volunteers and supporters who worked with York-based PIRC in the past year to provide services to vulnerable immigrants in Pennsylvania, was held on Sept. 22.

In 25 years of the PIRC, Freedman is the only person to be awarded the Light of Liberty designation more than once. Freedman was honored this year for spearheading a statewide effort to push courts to adjudicate U visa cases that have been backlogged for years. The PIRC previously gave Freedman the award in 2015 and 2018.

“The work the PIRC does is essential to the future of fair and just immigration not just in Pennsylvania, but throughout the country,” Freedman said. “It’s a privilege and an honor to help the brave, immigrant victims of sexual violence who are PIRC’s clients.”

Freedman is a member of the Barley Snyder Employment Practice Group and the chair of the firm’s Education Practice Group. He is also the president of the board of directors of the Lancaster Bar Association.
