Congratulations to HSPRD Partner Chirag Badlani on being named one of the Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40 in the country by the National LGBT Bar Association, an affiliate of the American Bar Association (ABA).
Each year, the LGBT Bar recognizes LGBT legal professionals under the age of 40 who have distinguished themselves in their field and have demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBT equality.
At HSPRD, Chirag represents clients in a wide variety of civil matters, with a focus in the areas of civil rights, constitutional law, labor and employment, and commercial litigation. He also represents clients in asylum and refugee matters, including individuals fleeing persecution based on their sexual orientation. In 2016, Chirag worked with HSPRD attorneys Juliet Berger-White and Charlie Wysong to draft a model school policy for inclusion of transgender and gender-expansive students, and is a member of Gender Inclusive Schools, a working group comprised of lawyers, educators, parents, and advocates focused on the improvement of educational policies and practices for transgender and gender-expansive students.
Chirag also serves as Chair of the Federal Bar Association’s LGBT Law Section.
