Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira LLP (AADS), a Miami-based corporate boutique law firm specializing in international and domestic M&A, finance, real estate, immigration and private wealth services, is the recipient of Dade Legal Aid’s Outstanding Law Firm Pro Bono Award.
AADS was one of ten honorees acknowledged on May 6 at the Dade County Bar Association’s Twenty-Seventh Annual Recognition Luncheon. During the luncheon, Dade Legal Aid recognized AADS for its commitment to support the non-profit law firm by helping to staff the monthly LegalLine Clinic, handling various pro bono cases for clients, and providing other support to the agency, such as donating money to the organization in lieu of client holiday gifts this past year.
“We feel extremely honored to receive the Outstanding Law Firm Pro Bono Award. We are proud to be able to contribute to our community by offering our legal services to those in need through Dade Legal Aid’s programs,” said Colleen Grady, a partner at AADS who accepted the award on the firm’s behalf.
Grady, along with Kristofer Hernandez, an associate at the firm, worked tirelessly on five pro bono cases in the past year, assisting vulnerable members of the Miami-Dade community. Grady was also involved with staffing the monthly LegalLine Clinic, a hotline for free legal advice. The LegalLine Clinic is a 1(800) call-in program that is held on the first Wednesday night of each month. This clinic gives Miami-Dade citizens an accessible forum to talk to lawyers and receive referrals for their legal concerns.
