Fordham Law alumna Gina DelChiaro ’05 was featured in a Law360 article on Akerman LLP’s announcement that DelChiaro will be the firm’s new head of pro bono projects.
Gina DelChiaro, who is joining the firm as a partner and was previously with Lawyers Alliance for New York, will work with Akerman and its 700 attorneys to see how they can best serve the needs of the communities they call home, according to the firm’s April 25 announcement.
While at Lawyers Alliance, she also organized a network of pro bono providers in 15 cities throughout the United States that were geared toward business law, according to the firm.
“Gina’s hands-on experience initiating pro bono and volunteering efforts will further strengthen Akerman’s commitment to helping the most defenseless members of our society,” Andrew Smulian, chairman and CEO of Akerman, said in a statement.
“Gina is the perfect candidate to lead Akerman’s efforts in closing the justice gap while advancing our firm’s commitment to disadvantaged youth.”
