Firm Hosts “Family Matters” Reception for DePaul Family Law Center

Nearly 200 people gathered at Jenner & Block’s Chicago office last week to honor attorneys who have devoted their careers to helping children, families and the elderly at the “Family Matters” awards reception benefiting the Schiller DuCanto and Fleck Family Law Center at the DePaul Unversity College of Law.

“It’s inspiring to see these attorneys help families who can’t afford to help themselves,” said Partner Tanya J. Stanish, who serves on the Family Law Center’s Advisory Board and helped to organize the “Family Matters” reception. 

Receiving awards were Robert Harris, Cook County Public Guardian; Bernard Rinella, Partner at Rinella & Rinella, Ltd.; Leslie Landis, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Domestic Violence; and the matrimonial law firm of Schiller DuCanto and Fleck.  NBC News Anchor Allison Rosati served as Master of Ceremonies for the event, and Mayor Richard M. Daley was the Honorary Event Chairman. 

The Schiller DuCanto and Fleck Family Law Center focuses on teaching, research, law reform, and community service in all areas of family law.
