The annual survey, which honors the commitment by law firms and their practitioners to give back to their local communities, highlighted SRZ’s work on Hurrell-Harring v. New York, a historic settlement that overhauls public defense in five counties and lays the foundation for statewide reform of New York’s public defense system.

With broad experience and expertise in the legal issues affecting nonprofit organizations, SRZ lawyers provide comprehensive and multidisciplinary representation on all aspects of their clients’ operations and management.
