NEW YORK, May 7, 2007 — Davis & Gilbert LLP partner Maureen McLoughlin has been elected to the Board of Directors of Manhattan Legal Services, a non-profit entity of Legal Services in New York (LSNY) that provides free legal help in civil matters to low-income people throughout Manhattan.

“This is an exciting and challenging time for Manhattan Legal Services,” said McLoughlin.  “I’m honored the Board provided me with the opportunity to assist in LSNY’s efforts on behalf of low-income people in Manhattan.”

McLoughlin, a partner in Davis & Gilbert’s Litigation Department and Employment Practices Group, is one of several new members elected to the Board.

“Davis & Gilbert is certainly proud of Maureen’s desire to contribute to the advancement of legal services to the underrepresented in Manhattan,” said Davis & Gilbert’s Managing Partner, Michael Ditzian.  “Davis & Gilbert is committed to supporting the pro-bono work of its lawyers.”

Harlem Legal Services and LSNY-Manhattan were recently combined to form Manhattan Legal Services, although the organization will keep both its Harlem and Lower Manhattan offices.
