Axinn to Receive Outstanding Achievement Award for Pro Bono Work
May 8, 2019

Axinn will receive an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Washington Lawyers’ Committee during the WLC’s Branton Luncheon on June 26. Axinn represented the plaintiff, Jovan Abrego, in his suit against officers of the Montgomery County Police Department for excessive force against Mr. Abrego and violations of Mr. Abrego’s First Amendment rights for interfering with Mr. Abrego’s videotaping of the police officers’ actions during the arrest of his brother and the MCPD itself for unconstitutional policies and procedures that lead to the officers’ actions. Axinn successfully defeated a motion to dismiss and obtained a favorable settlement during the course of discovery. The Axinn team included Michael O’Mara, Brandon Boxbaum, and Brendan O'Callaghan.
