Kevin Curnin is the Founding Director of the Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP nationally acclaimed Public Service Project. Kevin spearheads a vast array of pro bono projects carried out by the lawyers at Stroock. This initiative sends Stroock lawyers into courtrooms to advocate for clients in education, housing, family and criminal matters, just to name a few. Kevin discusses the impact that handling pro bono matters has upon the lawyers involved, their clients and the firm culture. Kevin candidly explains that this type of raw and often bare knuckles litigation places lawyers into uncomfortable situations that support their growth as advocates and people. This growth directly benefits all of the clients represented by Stroock. Kevin also shares the firm’s humble view toward addressing issues of diversity, equality and inclusion. It is with this humility that Kevin and his colleagues at Stroock have identified areas for progress and are implementing meaningful strategies for change. Kevin credits his personal wellness regime for much of his creativity and vision in continuing to lead by example as he makes a difference inside and outside of the law. Enjoy this episode of Iron Advocate as we continue to explore how lawyers can kill it in the practice of law without it killing us.
