The inaugural Friends of Legal Aid Awards Luncheon was held September 12, 2019 at Happy Hollow Country Club in Omaha. During the luncheon, the first Equal Justice Awards were presented to recognize partners who “have made particularly significant and noteworthy contributions to the shared goal of equal justice for all.”
Fraser Stryker’s own Mark Laughlin, along with David K. Cripe of Hauptman O’Brien Wolf & Lathrop PC, was presented with the Equal Justice “Attorney Partner Award.”
“These successful Omaha private attorneys were recognized for their leadership and involvement in helping hundreds of low-income refugees displaced from their apartments one year ago. These families were forced to live in unsafe, unhealthy, and unacceptable conditions. Recognizing their sophisticated legal skills would be of great help to these families, Mark and David stepped forward to lend a hand in this fight against injustice. Working in partnership with Legal Aid, Family Housing Advisory Services, and other community partners, they have initiated powerful legal actions demanding accountability and future change to improve our community.”
