Superstorm Sandy: One Year Commemoration Pro Bono Award

The New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) honored Kirkland with a pro bono award to recognize the Firm’s support of NYLAG and the organization’s storm response efforts on the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy making landfall in New York City. When the storm flooded NYLAG’s downtown headquarters, Kirkland provided temporary office space for Total Life Choices, NYLAG’s advance planning program, for 10 weeks. In the immediate aftermath of the storm, Firm attorneys also worked with NYLAG attorneys to provide pro bono legal advice at community sites and aboard NYLAG’s Mobile Legal Help Center. Founded in 1990, the New York Legal Assistance Group provides high-quality, free civil legal services to low-income residents of New York.
