In honor of Pro Bono Month, celebrated in October each year, we’d like to highlight some of the Firm’s tremendous pro bono achievements from 2021, as well as to recognize our attorneys’ tireless dedication to expanding access to justice, providing high-quality representation to some of the most vulnerable members of our communities, and responding to some of the most urgent issues of our day. Throughout the course of the last few years, as the Firm and the world grappled with a rapidly changing world, we have doubled down on our efforts to fight for racial justice, to bring relief to those most directly impacted by the pandemic, to defend the immigrant community, and, most recently, to tackle head-on the heartbreaking humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan.
We hope this newsletter gives you a taste of the types of work the Firm takes on through its pro bono practice, including advising small businesses and nonprofits, appellate litigation, immigration, racial justice and criminal justice reform, and veterans advocacy. We are so proud of our attorneys’ work on these issues and look forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings!
