Casa Cornelia Law Center offers quality, free legal services to victims of human and civil rights violations in Southern California. Latham & Watkins has supported the public interest law center through pro bono work for many years, and our lawyers have helped represent many Casa Cornelia clients, including immigrant victims of crime as well as children and adults seeking asylum in the United States.
At its 25th anniversary celebration, Casa Cornelia presented Latham with its Jubilee Law Firm of the Year award. The ceremony “celebrate[d] the dedication of exceptional attorneys and law firms who have a commitment to the success Casa Cornelia’s clients and their cases.” Since its founding in 1993, Casa Cornelia has helped more than 10,000 people in San Diego and Southern California. In addition to firmwide recognition, San Diego associate Lindsay Gochnour was recognized with a Pro Bono Publico Award.
“Congratulations to Casa Cornelia on its milestone anniversary. We admire and applaud all that you do to protect, empower, and support those without the means to pay,” said Jeff Carlin, counsel in Latham’s San Diego office. “We thank you for the award, and look forward to continuing to partner with you in the service of our community.”
