Supporting Our Communities

  • Kristen Hudson, Chuhak & Tecson principal and general counsel, actively supported Chicago Volunteer Legal Services’ (CVLS) 4th Annual Law and Disorder fundraiser and awards ceremony on May 17 at the River Roast in Chicago. The event raised money for individuals who are above the poverty line but are still in need of assistance. 

    Hudson was charged with selling tickets, one of the many activities she has committed herself to in her nearly 15 years of involvement with CVLS—driven by her belief that low-income Chicagoans should receive quality legal representation. Having begun her association there as a graduate fellow with the Public Interest Law Initiative, she now serves on the board of directors.

    The event celebrated pro bono work and honored the volunteers who make it happen in their commitment to equal access to justice. Guests enjoyed light refreshments while listening to lawyer and comedian Anna Sankaran and writer, actor and comedian Michael Palascak.
