History of the Taste

Twelve years ago Dave Markowitz gathered a handful of friends and hosted a private dinner to raise money for St. Andrew Legal Clinic. That first wine tasting was a quiet success and the start of an annual tradition. Now in its 12th year the Taste for Justice has become legend, raising over a million dollars to support family law services for low to moderate income families in our communities. These families do not qualify for free services through legal aid.
