Stephen Broome Named One of New York Law Journal’s 2016 “Lawyers Who Lead by Example”


Partner Stephen Broome was featured by the New York Law Journal as one of its “Lawyers Who Lead by Example.” Stephen was honored in the Pro Bono category, which recognizes attorneys with an outstanding record of providing legal service to underprivileged New Yorkers. The publication selected Stephen in large part for his work representing Luis Ramon Morales-Santana in Lynch v. Morales-Santana. In that case, the Second Circuit agreed with Stephen’s and his team’s arguments that sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act unconstitutionally discriminate on the basis of gender. Stephen’s client, Mr. Morales, was previously subject to deportation, but was deemed an American citizen by the Second Circuit. The government petitioned for certiorari and the Supreme Court granted certiorari. Stephen argued the appeal before the Supreme Court on November 9, 2016.
