The firm’s John Stephens was named Man of the Year by the Chicago Chapter of the Buoniconti Fund at their 2013 dinner, held at Hugo’s Frog Bar in Chicago on December 5. Established in 1992, the Fund has raised over $350 million for the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, which was co-founded by NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti, his son Marc (paralyzed by a college football injury in 1985), and neurosurgeon Barth Green. The Project has made significant breakthroughs in addressing the multifaceted problems of spinal cord injury, improving care and developing treatments for people with SCI.
The Fund’s Chicago Chapter was established in 1998, and is currently led by the firm’s client, Volunteer Regional Director John Bucheleres.
Stephens says, “I’m honored to be able to support the important work of the Buoniconti Fund and the remarkable developments taking place in the fight to cure paralysis.” Mr. Stephens can be reached at 312/840-7017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
