Award Chicago Volunteer Legal Services

Distinguished Service Award

Kirkland received a Distinguished Service Award from Chicago Volunteer Legal Services at its annual award ceremony. The Firm was recognized for its "tradition of accepting tough litigation cases for low income individuals, regardless of the fact that they won't be rewarded, either financially or with media attention. From partners on down to associates, the firm embraces the ideals of equal access to justice by providing pro bono legal services to those who need it most."

Jordan Heinz was also honored with an individual award for his work on behalf of CVLS' Pro Bono Referral Program.
