Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, Inc. awarded Kirkland & Ellis LLP its James Cardinal Hickey Award for providing outstanding pro bono legal services through the Archdiocesan Legal Network. This is the highest honor that an individual or law firm can receive from the program. Since 2010, 10 Kirkland attorneys in the Firm's Washington, D.C., office have volunteered with the Legal Network by conducting in-person client intake, accepting pro bono cases and contributing financially to the program. In addition, Thomas D. Yannucci, litigation partner in the Washington, D.C., office and Chair Emeritus of Kirkland's Firmwide Management Committee, serves on the Legal Network's board of directors. Each year, the Legal Network provides more than $8 million in pro bono legal services to more than 5,000 residents in the Washington, D.C., area in the areas of consumer debt and bankruptcy, employment, family law, housing, public benefits, wills and probate, and guardianship and conservatorship.
