On Nov. 9, 2016, Locke Lord lawyers from the Firm’s Hartford and Stamford offices volunteered at the Keep the Power On clinic, hosted in conjunction with the Center for Children’s Advocacy Medical/Legal Partnership Project. The clinic is available a few times throughout the year and is aimed to help families avoid utility termination and help them enter into affordable payment arrangements with gas and electric companies in Connecticut.
During the clinic, Locke Lord lawyers worked cooperatively with residents of Bridgeport, Conn, and various utility companies to find mutually acceptable payment plans whereby the residents, who were in imminent danger of having their utilities disconnected, would be able to keep their utilities connected.
Founded in 1997, the Center for Children’s Advocacy is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and protecting the legal rights of Connecticut's most vulnerable children.
Locke Lord lawyers who volunteered included Julie Mahaney from the Firm’s Hartford office and Alicia Carroll and Joshua Jones from the Firm’s Stamford office.
