The South Side pastor who spent three months on the roof of an abandoned motel is now being represented by a prestigious law firm.

Pastor Corey Brooks camped out on top of the building to raise money for its demolition. He wants to build a community center on the site.

The law firm of Katten Muchin Rosenman, where former mayor Richard Daley is employed, is now representing Brooks.

The law firm took on Brooks and his Project HOOD -- Helping Others Obtain Destiny -- as a pro-bono client.
