EVENT DATE: Mar 16, 2013
Christine Morrison wrote -For the eighth year in a row, the firm is proud to be an official sponsor for Public Counsel's Run for Justice on Saturday, March 16, 2013. Every year Katten supports those who wish to participate in the Run for Justice by sponsoring the 3.1-Mile Fun Run/Walk. This is a great way for the Firm to support a very worthy cause, while also providing some great exercise and a chance to spend time with co-workers and their families. Our LA office is very active in providing Public Counsel with pro bono assistance. We have supported their Adoption Program, where attorneys assist low-income parents with the adoption of children from the foster care system, immigration issues, unlawful detainer matters, and provided assistance with an asset analysis for the East Los Angeles Community Corporation. Through Public Counsel we have also handled civil rights and prisoners' rights cases. Please donate and help us reach our team goal!
