Hughes Hubbard celebrated the fifth anniversary of its Pro Bono Criminal Trial Program (“CTP”) at a reception held at the firm’s New York office on July 13.
Over 75 guests were present to mark this milestone, including alumni of the program, summer associates, assistant district attorneys and in-house counsel with clients who support the CTP. Among the speakers were Bill Maguire; HHR alum Jason Masimore, an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York; and Daryl Reed, assistant district attorney in the New York County District Attorney’s Office.
Since 2006, Hughes Hubbard has been one of only two New York firms to offer a pro bono criminal defense program. More than 80 attorneys, summer associates, paralegals and interns have represented over 35 indigent clients in nearly 40 cases.
