Pro Bono Initiatives and Community Service

Weil attorneys and paralegals were recognized by the New York Legal Aid Society with its 2013 Pro Bono Publico Award, the Society’s highest law firm award, for the role they played in “delivering life-changing legal assistance to our City’s most vulnerable residents.” The New York office has partnered with The Legal Aid Society for many years to offer legal services on a diverse range of matters, including saving homes, representing death row inmates, safeguarding prisoners’ rights, representing families at risk of homelessness in class actions, and advising small businesses.

In 2013 Weil worked with The Legal Aid Society to help Superstorm Sandy victims with submitting appeals to FEMA on behalf of individuals whose homeowner insurance claims were denied, as well as serving as co-counsel on a class-action suit against New York City when it moved to evict about 1,000 displaced storm victims living in hotels through a temporary shelter program. Weil teams also helped to restore funding for rental assistance programs that help low-income families avoid eviction and homelessness, and secured urgent surgery for a New York State prison inmate.

Weil and attorneys from the New York office also received The Legal Aid Society’s 2012 Innovative Pro Bono Initiative Award, which honors a law firm that establishes a pro bono project or specialty that uniquely meets the critical legal needs of low-income New Yorkers.
