Lorena Valle Awarded Porter Hedges Pro Bono Award

Firm News

Porter Hedges is proud to announce that Lorena Valle is the recipient of our annual Pro Bono Award for her exceptional work with Kids In Need of Defense (KIND). The Pro Bono award recognizes the associate who has dedicated the most hours to pro bono service in the last 12 months.

Lorena provided invaluable assistance with a complex immigration case on behalf of an unaccompanied minor seeking Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJ) and work authorization. This KIND case has been with the firm for almost a decade. Her dedication to navigating the complexities of the immigration system was crucial in finally securing a positive outcome for our client and exemplifies the profound impact that skilled legal representation can have on vulnerable individuals.

Congratulations, Lorena!
