Common Pleas Court Judge Annette Rizzo has received widespread attention for her supervision of Philadelphia's Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Program, which has helped prevent struggling homeowners from losing their homes.

Now, even the White House is taking notice.

Rizzo and her law clerk, Rachel Gallegos, are expected to speak tomorrow during a White House panel discussion titled "Closing the Justice Gap for America's Working Families." The program is an outgrowth of Vice President Biden's Middle Class Task Force.

Besides Biden, others scheduled to attend include U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
