We are excited to congratulate Kimberly Scott, a principal in our Ann Arbor office, who will be awarded the prestigious State Bar of Michigan John W. Cummiskey Pro Bono Award, given annually to recognize outstanding pro bono service.

Since June 2017, Kim has worked on the widely publicized class action case Hamama v. Adducci, which she has done on a pro bono basis in cooperation with the ACLU of Michigan. The case has impacted some 1,400 Iraqi nationals who had been living in the United States for years, and even decades. Hundreds of them live in Southeast Michigan.

"Kim's work in the Hamama matter has been extraordinary," said CEO Michael McGee. "She, along with our pro bono team and the ACLU, has quite literally saved lives by helping the clients attain the access to justice."

To learn more about Kim's selfless efforts, please view the full news release.

Congratulations, Kim!
