, among a host of others—prosecutors dropped all charges in the middle of jury selection in November 2018.
“God sent me these angels,” Mr. Aguirre says of his legal team. “Thanks to them, I have my life back.”
Mr. Black says he is grateful for the team’s opportunity to achieve long-overdue justice for their client. “This shows the critical difference that a dedicated legal team can make to the life of someone who has been failed by the system.”
Volunteer Lawyers Birmingham (VLB) congratulates Bradley for its win in State of Florida v. Clemente Aguirre-Jarquin. “This is just one standout illustration of the firm’s commitment to helping underserved people through legal aid,” says VLB Executive Director Nancy Yarbrough. “Bradley’s vast pro bono program and community service ranges from working to overturn wrongful convictions to serving low-income individuals in less dramatic, but deeply impactful, ways from helping families with adoption to protecting clients against wrongful eviction.”
In recognition of this dedication, the Alabama State Bar recently recognized Bradley with the 2019 Law Firm Award for pro bono service.
Bradley has long been a supporter of VLB, both financially as a Platinum Level Champions for Justice Donor and through countless hours volunteering on behalf of our clients. When VLB launched our Standing with Woodlawn Community Help Desk, Bradley committed to sending attorney volunteers to every session. Bradley attorneys have also been instrumental in the VLB Patent Program, which helps inventors with limited financial resources obtain patents.
