In recognition of National Pro Bono Week in the U.S., Shearman & Sterling is spotlighting some of the most impactful pro bono matters that it has advised on throughout the past year.

In the Spring of this year, associate Stacy Ruegilin (Washington, D.C.-Antitrust) successfully helped a family with a housing transfer in Washington, D.C. The family’s daughter was suffering from a chronic respiratory illness, due in part to the terrible housing conditions that she had been living in. In the below local news segment, Stacy shares the impact that the housing situation had on the family and the steps taken to help resolve the matter.
