March 2022 – Chaffetz Lindsey was pleased to sponsor of New York Lawyers for the Public Interest’s (NYLPI), 29th Annual Law & Society Awards Luncheon on March 8, 2022, which honored John J. Suydam (Senior Partner and Chief Legal Officer at Apollo Global Management) and Debo P. Adegbile (Partner, Chair, Anti-Discrimination Practice at WilmerHale). The Annual Law & Society Awards Luncheon proceeds sustain NYLPI’s innovative efforts combining law, organizing, and the power of the private bar to achieve justice for all New Yorkers.
Chaffetz Lindsey has been a supporter of NYLPI for several years. Our attorneys do pro bono work for the organization, and several of our firm’s leaders are active in leadership roles for the organization. We’ve also supported the organization financially in past years through various fundraising campaigns, including our “Donate Your Commute” efforts.
Most recently, Chaffetz Lindsey used Giving Tuesday 2021 to benefit NYLPI in addition to supporting other Not For Profit organizations who have supported us in the past. We invited Tania Cohen and Farrell Brody, who among the many outstanding firm alumni Chaffetz Lindsey has the honor to have worked with, to speak with us about the charitable organizations they now work for that make a positive impact every day. Tania acts as a Senior Staff Attorney at Safe Passage Project, a nonprofit immigration legal services organization. Safe Passage provides free lawyers for children in the NYC-area facing deportation to life-threatening situations. Farrell is a Senior Staff Attorney for TakeRoot Justice, an organization providing legal research and policy support in New York City to dismantle racial, economic and social oppression.
As a show of our gratitude for the incredibly valuable work these organizations do, a firm-wide effort raised total of $26,315 in support of these three organizations – giving back to those who give so much to all.
