Trinity Morale Awarded Liskow & Lewis Inaugural Pro Bono Award
Liskow & Lewis is proud to announce the establishment of the Liskow & Lewis Pro Bono Award. The firm believes pro bono work is essential in order to advance the legal standing of diverse and historically underserved populations, and the firm is proud to recognize the attorneys who make significant pro bono contributions.
The firm is excited to announce that Trinity Morale is the inaugural recipient of the Liskow & Lewis Pro Bono Award. Trinity volunteered over 400 hours of her time providing legal services to those unable to pay for representation in 2020. She assisted with an international child abduction case before Judge Zainey in the Eastern District of Louisiana which was favorably resolved. She was later appointed by Magistrate Judge North as lead trial attorney to represent the plaintiff in a multi-defendant, Section 1983 prisoner’s rights case pending also in the Eastern District of Louisiana. The case is pending, but Trinity and the other members of the Liskow team have defeated a motion to dismiss and a motion for summary judgment by defendants.
"Pro Bono work is something that we are passionate about at Liskow & Lewis and we thought it was important to recognize those who go above and beyond contributing their time and services. I love seeing the impact our lawyers make on those who deserve justice, and we look forward to another year of significant pro bono work," said Ray Waid, chair of the firm's pro bono committee.
