The Los Angeles office is a long-standing community leader, providing millions of dollars in pro bono legal services and raising significant funding for local non-profits each year. This office has achieved victories in pro bono matters that run the gamut from child rights advocacy and land use to asylum and civil rights protection.
Among the more recent pro bono projects, a team of lawyers from the Los Angeles office helped lead an effort to obtain pensions for Holocaust survivors who worked in German-controlled ghettos during World War II.
In the area of community service, the lawyers and professional staff from the Los Angeles office have helped prominent non-profit organizations raise awareness and funding. The Los Angeles office is an annual supporter of the 'Food From the Bar' campaign and raised more than US$80,000 for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in 2013, which provides meals to children, the elderly and families in Los Angeles who would otherwise go hungry.
