Kalpana Peddibhotla, founder of the Mathews & Peddibhotla Law Group, will receive the Tahirih Justice Center’s Pro Bono Attorney of the Year award at its inaugural San Francisco Bay Area gala March 8th.
The Tahirih Justice Center is a national advocacy organization for immigrant women and girls who are victims of violence. Peddibhotla has offered pro bono services to the organization on a number of immigration cases.
“The courageous clients that Kalpana serves have often suffered horrendous abuse. Kalpana treats each case and individual with respect. Because of her hard work, these clients are able to receive the protection they so richly deserve,” said Morgan Weibel, executive director of Tahirih Justice Center’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter.
“I am honored and humbled to receive this award from the Tahirih Justice Center,” said Peddibhotla. “These are troubled times for immigrants. We need fierce advocates to ensure that justice is fairly meted out to everyone for whom America is home.”
