Cahill Honored with The Legal Aid Society's Pro Bono Publico Award
Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP has again been honored by The Legal Aid Society of New York with the Society’s Pro Bono Publico Award. The 2012 award recognizes the firm’s outstanding pro bono service in major projects in Juvenile rights, meeting the needs of children in foster care who are abused or neglected. Cahill or Cahill lawyers have been honored with The Legal Aid Society’s Pro Bono Award each year since 2006, when the firm began to work closely with pro bono clients of the Kathryn A. McDonald Educational Advocacy Project of the Juvenile Rights Practice.
Several Cahill lawyers also again received individual awards. Adam Mintz was recognized for his securing preschool special education services for two children who had gone without critical services for several months. Floyd Abrams, David Januszewski, Brockton Bosson and Karen Cavalier were also recognized for their assistance to The Legal Aid Society.
Through our 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, tenants who are denied the most basic of services, and indigent defendants in criminal appeals.
