Transgender Pro Bono Client Secures Legal Name Change

A transgender pro bono client, referred to the firm through the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund’s Name Change Project, achieved victory in her petition for a legal name change in New York City Civil Court. In addition to granting the petition, the judge waived the statutory requirement to publish notice of the name change and ordered the file permanently sealed.

The Paul, Weiss team included litigation associates Dan Sinnreich and Brittney Xu, and litigation partner Audra Soloway.
