Burke, Warren, MacKay & Serritella was selected to receive the Metropolitan Family Services Legal Aid Society’s Scott Solberg Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year Award for its work in support of the organization.
The Legal Aid Society provides legal support to vulnerable citizens including low income, the elderly, and victims of domestic violence. Founded in 1886, The Legal Aid Society is one of the first organizations in the US to provide legal services to citizens in need. The organization’s mission is to provide “justice for all.”
The Scott Solberg Pro Bono Law Firm Award honors law firms, corporations, and attorneys who display a strong commitment to the fundamental principles of equal protection and equal justice in the community through outstanding pro bono service. The Firm was recognized for the award at the Metropolitan Family Services Legal Aid Luncheon on October 26 at the Standard Club in Chicago.
Thank you to Alex Marks, Shana Shifrin, Pat Carlson, Tiffany Sorge Smith, Eric VanderPloeg, Adam Rick and Madeleine Milan for their continued support and dedication to both the Legal Aid Society and the Firm’s Pro Bono practice.
“This recognition is a great honor for Burke, Warren,” says Alex Marks, chair of the Firm’s Pro Bono committee. “It’s an indication of our strong commitment to support the work of a tremendous organization like the Legal Aid Society, as well as our Firm-wide commitment to pro bono efforts.”
