Lerch Early Attorneys Recognized for Pro Bono Work

Four Lerch Early attorneys will be recognized at the inaugural Montgomery County Pro Bono Recognition Event on June 6, 2019.

Litigator Caitlin Grant, litigator Mike Goecke, land use attorney Chris Ruhlen, and business attorney Stuart Schwager each provided more than 50 hours of pro bono service last year.

Their work involved Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases (allowing residency to undocumented minors who have suffered abandonment, neglect, or abuse by a parent) as well as staffing legal clinics at Shepherd’s Table for the Homeless Persons Representation project.

The event is sponsored by the Montgomery County, MD Local Pro Bono Committee, appointed by the Maryland Court of Appeals to report on pro bono service and related issues. Litigator Lauri Cleary serves on that committee.
