Jenner & Block Partner Michael T. Brody is featured in an “In the Spotlight” column in the September 14 edition of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.  The article discusses his work with the nonprofit Family Defense Center, which advocates for and defends families that have been unfairly separated by the child welfare system.  Mr. Brody became involved with the Center about three years ago, while representing clients whose families were in crisis; today, he serves on the board and co-chairs its program committee.  The column notes that the organization’s fourth annual Awards Gala and Cocktail Reception benefit event will take place on September 23,  from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Hotel Allegro, 171 W. Randolph Street, Chicago.  Partner Norman M. Hirsch and his wife Ann Courter are co-chairs of the benefit.
