MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. – Briggs and Morgan has received the Children’s Law Center’s (CLC) 2017 Distinguished Service Award. The award was given in recognition of the firm’s outstanding commitment to pro bono legal representation for Minnesota foster youth.

“My Briggs colleagues and I are proud to serve this great organization in many capacities – as members of the board, as volunteer attorneys, as financial contributors and as partners and advocates,” said Elizabeth Brama, Briggs shareholder and CLC board and executive committee member. “Most importantly, we want to help Children’s Law Center give a voice to Minnesota’s abused and neglected children, and encourage others to do the same.”

Children’s Law Center is appointed by the court to provide legal representation to children who are either wards of the state – “legal orphans” – or have been removed from their homes because they are in need of protection. Children’s Law Center also represents foster children who request help and provides this quality representation free of charge. Currently, Children’s Law Center represents more than 700 children per year.
