Milwaukee, Wisc. (Oct. 28, 2021) – Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is excited to announce that Emma Jewell is a recipient of the Milwaukee Bar Association’s 2021 Pro Bono Publico award for her recent pro bono work, which culminated in her successful argument before the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Emma represented a pro bono client on a criminal appeal before the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, including a successful argument before the Wisconsin Supreme Court involving important constitutional issues, ultimately dedicating close to 300 hours to seeing the case through.

“We are so proud of Emma and her accomplishments. She has shown a dedication to pro bono work unmatched among her peers and shows promise as a skilled litigator and fierce advocate for her clients,” says Anthony Baish, a shareholder in Godfrey & Kahn’s Litigation practice group.

The Pro Bono Publico Award recognizes individuals for their outstanding pro bono service and dedication to the practice of law at the State Court.
