The article informs that Liverpool, England-based law firm Edwards Abrams Doherty (EAD) acted pro bono in a case. For the parents of Eileen Doran, a sufferer of an incurable brain disease who passed away last month, in their widely publicized High Court battle to preserve their daughter's life, EAD acted pro bono. An earlier ruling allowing 31-year-old Eileen, a sufferer of mitochondrial cytopathy, a condition that causes constant fits and over time leads to brain damage, to die, was being contested by the Doran family.
