Danny Ludeman, past parent, was featured in Town & Style on 08.28.19: "It’s difficult to comprehend the range of health, financial and family issues faced by formerly incarcerated adults re-entering society. Some nonprofits try to help with basic employment and training programs, and while their efforts are worthy, Concordance Academy of Leadership CEO Danny Ludeman says a much broader range of services is needed to help them succeed and avoid reincarceration. Since 2016, Concordance has been addressing these needs with a comprehensive reintroduction program that includes legal assistance. According to Ludeman, when people are released from prison, they often have legal problems like outstanding warrants, child support disputes and unresolved traffic violations. His organization and the Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner law firm have established Concordance Legal Fellows, a program that pairs attorneys with participants to help them clear up these matters. This way, they can move forward without spending more time in jail waiting to see a judge. The program saves the court system significant resources as well, Ludeman says. To date, the attorneys have helped resolve 431 cases, made 383 court appearances on participants’ behalf and cleared 337 warrants." Read the whole story here
