Volunteer Honored by Catholic Lawyers

Royal Berg

Longtime CVLS volunteer and friend, Royal Berg , was honored recently by The Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago with the 2019 Lawyer of the Year award at their annual Red Mass reception.

Roy has practiced immigration law in Chicago as a solo practitioner since 1984. During which time he has served as Co-Chair of the Human Rights Committee of the Chicago Bar Association, and the Litigation Committee of the Chicago Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). He is also a founding Board Member of Immigrants’ List, a pro-immigrant, pro-immigration political action committee formed in 2006.

Always ready with a smile and energetic attitude, Roy has made a name for himself over the years as a caring, dedicated attorney who fights tirelessly for his clients. This work ethic has made him no stranger to accolades. Over his career, Roy has received numerous awards, including being named to CVLS’ Honor Roll in 2006.

Congratulation Roy, you deserve it!
