Riker Danzig to Receive ACLU-NJ Legal Leadership Award
Jan 10, 2019

Riker Danzig is pleased to announce that the Firm will be a recipient of the 2019 Legal Leadership Award by the ACLU of New Jersey for our pro bono work on behalf of New Jersey’s Indonesian Christian residents at risk of deportation. We will be recognized at the ACLU’s “Lights of Liberty” dinner in May.

Our Riker Danzig team of attorneys Sigrid Franzblau, Brooks Leonard, Michael Crowley, Cristin Boyle, and paralegal Silva Dechoyan has been assisting the ACLU-NJ in filings to prevent deportations of Indonesian Christian residents of Central Jersey.  The ACLU-NJ characterized this effort as an “unprecedented collaboration” in providing critical legal representation to this vulnerable immigrant community.

We are proud of the work of Sigrid, Brooks, Mike, Cristin, and Silva in earning this noteworthy recognition, and for making such a significant difference for these New Jersey families.
