Two clients, Aide Herrera and Robert Bacette, recently won the right to become US citizens thanks to pro bono representation by Jenner & Block lawyers. Partner Mike McNamara prepared Ms. Herrera’s application, and Partner Howard Symons prepared Mr. Bacette’s. Staff Attorney Michael DeMar prepared both of them for their citizenship interviews. Ms. Herrera was sworn in as a US citizen on March 23, and Mr. Bacette was sworn in on April 12. This representation was part of our pro bono partnership with lawyers at McDonald’s and was supervised by Partner Wade Thomson.
