Attorney Lindsay Citrin Wins Cooley Great Deeds Award
June 18, 2012 - Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Auburn Hills campus is pleased to award the 2011 Great Deeds Award to Estate Planning Clinic (EPC) Staff Attorney Lindsay Citrin.
Each year, Cooley's Center for Ethics, Service, and Professionalism presents a Great Deeds Award to a faculty or staff member who has exhibited an outstanding dedication to community service throughout the year. Nominations are received from students, staff, faculty, community leaders, and people whose lives have been touched by a Cooley employee's Great Deeds. Winners are selected by a committee comprised of previous winners and members of Cooley's Professionalism Team.
Lindsay Citrin was selected this year for her wide range of community outreach efforts and for her commitment to making a difference. In her role as the EPC staff attorney, Citrin maintains continuous contact and provides tremendous service to the seniors of the Oakland County community. However, Citrin’s generosity and willingness to help others does not end with her role as a staff attorney.
Citrin has worked with Cooley's Service to Soldiers Project, has administered and staffed Cooley's Senior Pro Bono Outreach efforts, and she regularly volunteers to assist with the Family Law Assistance Project’s intake clinic at the Oakland County Courthouse Library.
Citrin also recently ended a year as chair of the Oakland County Bar Association's Public Service Projects Committee. In this capacity, she assisted with and presented at the annual OCBA Senior Law Day at the Waterford Senior Center. The Law Day program provides seniors in the Oakland Community with the opportunity to receive information on legal topics that may affect them every day and the chance to pose questions to legal professionals. In addition, Citrin works with the Auburn Hills Meals on Wheels and delivers meals on Sundays.
Outside of these structured programs and leadership roles, Lindsay often reaches out to fill individual needs as well.
