Our congratulations to Milbank!
We are proud to have supported the nomination of our long-standing Corporate Partner, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, to receive the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) 2008 President’s Pro Bono Service Award for a large law firm. On May 1, the NYSBA recognized Milbank’s outstanding commitment to improving the greater public good through pro bono service at its 18th annual award ceremony on Law Day in Albany, New York.
Nurturing a strong culture of pro bono service
Deep commitment to NYC women and children
We honored Milbank associate Alyssa A. Rower, Esq. at our 2008 Commitment to Justice Awards ceremony in February for her representation of a Latina mother of two children, one autistic. With the full support of the firm, Alyssa’s skillful and dedicated advocacy resulted in a child support allocation which not only maximized the family’s income but also retained Medicaid eligibility for her client’s autistic son and health care for the entire family. Thanks to Alyssa’s dedication, skillful negotiation and advocacy, her client retained custody of her children and obtained a speedy and favorable decision in a visitation matter.
