New York, NY - Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that the firm received the Kids In Need of Defense (KIND)s inaugural Allegiance Award at the organizations first-ever fall Gala Dinner on October 5th.
Each year, thousands of children come to the United States without a parent or legal guardian and must face our immigration system alone. KIND works to place these children with pro bono attorneys from law firms, corporate legal departments, and law schools who will represent them in their immigration proceedings.
Providing these legal services is critical, given that many children who come to the United States alone are desperate, having fled difficult or dangerous circumstances in search of safety and protection, says KIND Executive Director Wendy Young. The Allegiance Award recognizes Paul Hastings demonstrated commitment and service to KINDs clients.
