Pro Bono

Our firm has a long and rich tradition of public service that is an integral part of the history, ethic, and operation of the institution. We take our professional obligation as lawyers seriously, with the principle of increasing access to justice guiding our pro bono efforts. As a national and international law firm, A & A handles a full spectrum of pro bono matters. Many involve significant legal issues with far-reaching effect, such as race, age, gender, and disability discrimination; human rights; freedom of speech; prisoners’ rights; and voting rights.
We also recognize a genuine responsibility to serve our local communities in a meaningful and results-oriented way by providing pro bono legal services to individuals and community-based nonprofit organizations where legal help would otherwise be unavailable. These matters include custody, adoption, domestic violence, housing and homelessness, political asylum, immigration, wage and hour claims, HIV/AIDS, education, consumer protection, public benefits, mental health, and tax.
