Following is an excerpt from the article (download in PDF format):
When the words global citizen and service are used, Mr. Pierre Georges Bonnefil should be among the first associations that come to mind. Described by the former French Consul General of New York, Bertrand Lortholary, as “a man whose entire career has been characterized by [an] unwavering desire to reach out to as many people as possible,” Mr. Bonnefil has built a life and legacy upon tireless service to those in need. Whether they are newly-arrived French Citizens in New York, Cuban Refugees relocating to St. Louis, Missouri, or the viewership of the Montel Williams Show, Mr. Bonnefil has offered his time, expertise, and compassion to ease their transitions into the next chapter of their lives. Currently, he holds the positions of Member of the Firm in the Immigration Law Group of the Employment, Labor, & Workforce Management Practice (since 2006) and Vice Chair of Diversity and Professional Development Committee (since 2013). In 2007, Mr. Bonnefil was awarded the French National Order of Merit and, in 2015, appointed one of the highest honors in the French government, Knight of the French Legion of Honor, for his years of service to French citizens in the United States and overseas.
