As we head into another week of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all struggling to cope with the rapidly changing landscape. Some of us have loved ones who have gotten sick or even passed away, others have loved ones living far away, and still others have loved ones fighting on the front lines of this pandemic as healthcare workers or first responders.

We are proud to showcase some of the pro bono awards and accolades the firm has received over the last few months, which reflect our impressive efforts. This year marks the 10th Annual National Celebration of Pro Bono, which aims to shine a spotlight on important pro bono work already underway and to encourage other lawyers to get involved. At Gibson Dunn we have much to be proud of in this respect. Whether protecting constitutional rights, working on behalf of the LGBTQ community, spearheading anti-human trafficking efforts, battling slumlords, fighting on behalf of domestic violence victims, advocating on behalf of veterans, or engaging on behalf of the immigrant community, our lawyers have worked hard this year to provide access to justice for those who could not otherwise afford it.

On May 7, 2018, the administration implemented a “zero tolerance policy,” pursuant to which all adults found to be entering the United States illegally would be subject to criminal prosecution. Furthermore, all adults who crossed the border accompanied by a minor child would be separated from that child. Many of the individuals affected by this policy were asylum seekers who had been forced to flee their homes due to violence and persecution.

Gibson Dunn’s pro bono work on behalf of immigrants and refugees over the last few months has been unprecedented in its scale and scope. The projects have ranged from emergency work by attorneys in the early hours after the first “Travel Ban” Executive Order was signed, to high-profile individual representations of immigrants facing deportation, to amicus briefs for dozens of firm clients advocating on behalf of core values, including a commitment to diversity.
