On July 10, over 20 attorneys were welcomed at a pro bono immigration training hosted by Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod. The training was presented by Dade Legal Aid and Catholic Legal Services to provide the firm and their guests with materials, information and a mentor in order to handle cases for unaccompanied minors. “A keystone of our firm’s culture is caring which we encourage our lawyers and staff to continuously demonstrate by their service to the community and particularly, to those who need help. This initiative on behalf of unaccompanied children is compelling, impactful and squarely within the assurances we each underwrote when we took the Oath of Admission to The Florida Bar. We are grateful to Dade County Legal Aid and Catholic Charities for championing this cause and training us to be helpful,” said Scott L. Baena on behalf of the firm.
