Talented Tag Team: Kirkland Duo Resolves Adult Guardianship Case

At Legal Prep Charter Academy in the Garfield Park neighborhood, CVLS partners with the Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) to provide legal assistance in the community. Together we host an in-person clinic once a month to help low-income clients with their civil legal needs. The clinic is currently not seeing clients in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but earlier this year, a couple of Kirkland & Ellis attorneys handled an intake together and tackled the case themselves.
