MALDEF's Excellence in Legal Service Award

On February 28, 2008, Fried Frank was honored with the Excellence in Legal Service Award at the Mexican American Legal Defense And Education Fund's (MALDEF) ninth annual Washington, DC Awards Gala. The relationship between MALDEF and Fried Frank has been bolstered by the Firm's MALDEF fellowship program which gives an entry-level lawyer the opportunity to spend two years as a Fried Frank litigator followed by two years as a staff attorney with the nonprofit institution. Through this partnership and litigation partner Janice Mac Avoy's participation on the MALDEF board, Fried Frank and MALDEF continue to create unique programs that effectively bridge the worlds of private law firm litigation and public service law.
