Kasowitz Raises Funds for Pro Bono Law Firm Public Counsel
For the third consecutive year, Kasowitz Benson Torres has participated in the “Run for Justice,” an annual 5K race in Los Angeles, California that raises funds for Public Counsel, the nation’s largest pro bono law firm.
The Kasowitz team was led by partner Daniel A. Saunders, who organized the Kasowitz team, and included legal secretary Phyllis Miller. Together, they raised over $4,000, placing the team in 6th place out of the 29 teams that participated in the 16th Annual “Run for Justice.” To date, Public Counsel has raised over $140,000 from this year’s event to support its pro bono services.
Public Counsel’s mission, since its founding in 1970, includes: protecting the legal rights of disadvantaged children; representing immigrants who have been the victims of torture, persecution, domestic violence, trafficking, and other crimes; and providing underserved individuals and institutions with access to quality legal representation. Public Counsel helps over 30,000 families, children, immigrants, veterans, and nonprofit organizations every year. Learn more about Public Counsel.
