Goldberg Kohn is honored be the recipient of the Charles J. O'Laughlin Memorial Award from the Chicago Legal Clinic at their 28th Annual Awards Banquet on Friday, May 6th, 2011. The award recognizes a law firm or corporate legal department with an exemplary record of pro bono representation.
Much of Goldberg Kohn's pro bono work supports charter schools and the education reform movement. The firm also served as lead trial counsel in a class action suit on behalf of 600,000 children eligible for Medicaid against the Illinois Departments of Public Aid and Human Services, resulting in a landmark decision vindicating the rights of children to have access to health care.
Terry Moritz, principal in the firm's litigation department, will accept the award on the firm's behalf.
