At today’s Sanctuary for Families Above & Beyond Awards virtual ceremony, a pro bono Stroock team of Michele Jacobson, Alexandra Lyon and Robert Mantel were recognized for their tireless pro bono work on behalf of “Christina,” a survivor of sex trafficking. 

Through their tireless efforts, the Stroock team was successful in helping Christina reinstate her tenancy after it was wrongfully terminated by the New York City Housing Authority. Michele, Alexandra and Robert worked diligently from August 2019 to June 2020 to help Christina save her home.

Congratulations to the team whose diligence and persistence resulted in Christina’s and her daughter’s ability to live in peace in their home, without fear of being evicted and rendered homeless.
