Silicon Valley-based Intellectual Property associate Assad Rajani has been awarded two distinctions for his commitment to pro bono legal services in the state of California.
The State Bar of California’s Board of Trustees has designated Rajani the recipient of the Wiley M. Manuel Pro Bono Services Certificate, which was created in 1989 to recognize the contributions of the many legal professionals in California who volunteer their time and expertise on behalf of low-income clients. The Certificate is named in memory of Justice Wiley W. Manuel, who became the first African American Justice of the California Supreme Court in 1977.
Additionally, Rajani received a Certificate of Recognition from the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, California for providing outstanding pro bono services to low income residents of the county. The Legal Aid Society provides free civil legal services to low-income San Mateo County residents.
Rajani regularly serves as pro bono counsel in guardianship cases, assists applicants applying for US citizenship, and has counseled residents in landlord-tenant disputes.
