Robert Juceam Honored as a 2010 Lifetime Achiever by The American Lawyer

Robert Juceam was honored by the American Lawyer as a 2010 Lifetime Achiever for his "extraordinary commitment to meet the legal needs of the less fortunate in dire circumstances." In the September 2010 issue of the publication, Mr. Juceam is one of eight lawyers recognized for their professional and personal achievements.

The article discusses his career and pro bono accomplishments, including his work with the ABA in the mid-1980s challenging the US Government's efforts to intercept Haitian refugees at sea and prevent them from entering the country. He also led the successful effort to recruit and provide lawyers to the more than 2,000 Haitian refugees detained by the government. Still active in retirement, Mr. Juceam most recently has been working with US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Robert Katzmann to improve the delivery of legal services to poor immigrants.

Mr. Juceam will be honored by American Lawyer at its annual awards ceremony on October 27, 2010.
