Sarah Cave and Reuben Borman were honored on Nov. 19 at the Legal Aid Society’s 2012 Pro Bono Publico Awards for providing exceptional legal services to low-income New Yorkers.

Specifically, they were honored for their outstanding work as co-counsel with the Juvenile Rights Practice in Rivera v. Mattingly, a federal lawsuit challenging the unlawful removal of children from their kinship foster family and the excessive delay in returning them home.

In addition, Hughes Hubbard was recognized for staffing the Legal Aid Society’s Detention Defense Hotline for detained immigrants. Each week, associates and paralegals answer calls and conduct phone interviews, providing assistance to the Legal Aid Society’s Civil Practice Immigration Law Unit.
