Pro Bono – All Hands and Hearts
Michael and a team of other Goulston & Storrs lawyers have had the privilege, over the past several years, of being outside, pro bono counsel to All Hands and Hearts Smart Response, Inc. AHAHs is a US-based, 501(c)3 non-profit, humanitarian organization that provides on-the-ground, volunteer assistance to people around the world affected by natural disasters.
The Goulston & Storrs team has provided legal assistance to AHAH in connection with its successful efforts to forge relationships, and enter into public and private agreements, necessary to provide post-disaster clean-up and demolition services, construction of temporary and permanent housing, and re-construction of damaged and destroyed schools, in areas as diverse as Thailand, Nepal, New York, the Philippine Islands, Detroit, Haiti, North Carolina, the Caribbean islands, Malawi and elsewhere.
AHAH harnesses the generosity of volunteers from around the world to help their global neighbors who have seen their lives and homes devastated by earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, typhoons and other natural disasters. The Goulston & Storrs team has also provided legal assistance to AHAH in connection with its recent merger with the Happy Hearts Fund. It is a great honor for us to be able to assist AHAH in pursuing these laudatory efforts.
