Edward Van Stevenson, Jr.
Ed Stevenson is the managing attorney with Neighborhood Legal Services, an adjunct professor with the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and Duquesne School of Law, a trainer with the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Internship Program for The Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network (PLAN).
He is admitted to practice before United States Third Circuit Court of Appeals, United States District Court for the Western District, and the United States Tax Court. He is a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, a former deacon and elder with the Macedonia Church of Pittsburgh, as well as former secretary/treasurer with Macedonia FACE, Incorporated. He has a bachelor degree in history and political science from Kentucky State University and a juris doctorate degree from the University of Kentucky School of Law. He received the PLAN Excellence Award in 2001, the MLK award for distinguish service 1996 & 1997, and the Community Service Award from Valerie Jeanne Parker Swan Memorial-Foundation, Incorporated 1973.
In a way, working for NLS is Stevenson’s childhood dream. When he was young, he dreamed that one day he would be a leading scorer in the NBA. Now, he says, he is blessed to work in the court rather than on it. The number of clients he has served over the years makes him a leading scorer at NLS.
