Joshua Gimbel, partner at Milwaukee’s Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, has been awarded one of the Estrella Brillante Awards at the United Community Center 52nd Anniversary celebration Friday.
The awards are given to individuals and entities recognized for their contributions in the community. Gimbel, president of the foundation, accepted the honor on behalf of the Gene and Ruth Posner Foundation, a nonprofit founded by his grandparents that seeks to support Marquette Law School’s pro bono efforts and activities. The UCC serves Hispanics, families, individuals and near South side residents by providing comprehensive services in education, human services, health, community development and cultural arts.
Gimbel was previously a partner at Michael Best & Friedrich before joining GRGB. As part of his other pro bono efforts, Gimbel volunteers at the Milwaukee Justice Center and Marquette Legal Clinics by providing brief legal advice to pro se litigants in Milwaukee County.
