Attorneys, staff raise money to support pro bono legal services
As part of the firm’s 25th anniversary service initiative, about 30 attorneys and staff from Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. will participate in Race Judicata on September 13. Now in its 19th year, the 5k walk/run is sponsored by Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation and supports the Foundation’s mission of providing free legal services to low-income Chicago residents.
Founded in 1964, CVLS has provided pro bono legal services to more than 18,000 Chicagoans. The organization is comprised of nearly 3,000 volunteers who donate their time in order to assist people who otherwise would not have access to legal representation. All proceeds from Race Judicata will go toward general operating costs of CVLS. The race is one of several fundraisers sponsored by CVLS each year. For more information, visit cvls.org.
Race Judicata will serve as the 18th event in Chuhak & Tecson’s 25 Ways to Give Back service initiative. In honor of our clients and our silver anniversary, the firm is participating in 25 community service events throughout the year. Projects include everything from volunteering at senior centers, to preparing a meal at Ronald McDonald House, to a backpack collection for underprivileged youth.
