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 2013 award recognizes the firm’s outstanding pro bono service in major projects in Juvenile rights. Cahill lawyers have been honored with The Legal Aid Society’s Pro Bono Award each year since 2005, when the firm began to work closely with pro bono clients of the Kathryn A. McDonald Educational Advocacy Project of the Juvenile Rights Practice.
Christine Mott was recognized for her work representing special needs children in obtaining necessary educational services. Ben A. Schatz was also recognized for his work on a criminal appeal. 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.
