The Legal Aid Society Honors Cahill with New York's Pro Bono Publico Award for 2017
Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP will be receiving The Legal Aid Society of New York's Pro Bono Publico Award in recognition of our "sustained commitment to providing pro bono assistance to both the Society and its clients." Current and former Cahill lawyers Danielle Newman, Melissa Brumer, Ethan Rosenfeld, Cydney Swofford Freeman, Peter Mazone, Connor O’Shea, John Schoolman and C.L. Junine So also received awards for their individual advocacy in specific cases. Since 2005, Cahill lawyers have been annually honored with The Legal Aid Society's Publico Award when the firm began to work closely with pro bono clients of the Kathryn A. McDonald Educational Advocacy Project of the Juvenile Rights Practice.
In partnership with The Legal Aid Society, Cahill provides pro bono representation to young children who are subjects of abuse and neglect in proceedings in New York Family Courts, to disabled individuals in need of social security benefits, to tenants who are denied the most basic of services and to indigent defendants in criminal appeals.
