Cahill Honored by The Legal Aid Society for Fifth Consecutive Year
Cahill is again the recipient of the Pro Bono Publico Award, presented by The Legal Aid Society of New York. The 2009 award recognizes the firm's outstanding pro bono service in major projects in Civil, Juvenile Rights and Criminal practice areas.
Stephen Dobson is recognized for this diligent and skillful representation that enabled a long-term public housing tenant to keep her home and permitted her disabled daughter to continue to reside with her. Diego Ibarguen was also recognized for his advocacy on behalf of four foster children who now have individualized education plans, the tools to develop academically, and stabilized foster care placements.
Noah Bishoff is honored for his diligent representation of a client who was an informant and played a limited role in the underlying robbery charge.
Through its partnership with the Legal Aid Society, Cahill provides representation to young children who are the subjects of abuse and neglect proceedings in New York Family Courts, disabled individuals in need of social security benefits, immigrant youth who are the subjects of abuse, tenants who are denied the most basic of services, and handles criminal appeals on behalf of indigent defendants.
