(PACE) List up to three representative examples of your firm s pro bono matters since Please limit your answer to a short paragraph per matter. Michael Bramit, with others, participated in the attempted robbery and shooting of Jose Fierros while the intoxicated Fierros was in the process of entertaining solicitations by prostitutes. Bramit, an African American, was age 18 years and 1 month at the time of the 1994 shooting. He was charged with capital murder, found guilty, sentenced to death in Riverside, California and the verdict and death sentence were affirmed on appeal. Our firm was appointed state habeas counsel to represent Bramit in his state post-conviction proceedings. Bramit was raised by a crack-cocaine addicted mother who was incapable of taking care of him or his siblings. He grew up in the gang-infested neighborhoods of Los Angeles and Riverside and began stealing to provide food and clothing for his younger siblings at a young age. Bramit s court-appointed trial attorney conducted very minimal pre-trial investigation, called no defense witnesses and did not give an opening statement in the guilt phase. Only a few witnesses were called during the penalty phase, including Bramit s mother, whose testimony negatively impacted his case. Bramit is currently incarcerated in San Quentin prison. The firm s client had been having difficulty meeting his mortgage obligations and looked to outside assistance to obtain a loan modification. In what has become an increasingly common scheme, the defendants offered to negotiate with the client s bank in exchange for an upfront fee, but then took no action to obtain a loan modification. While the firm s client thankfully caught on to the scheme in time to save his property, he nevertheless lost the upfront fee of $2,000. The Washington Lawyers Committee brought this matter to the attention of MLA and together filed a suit in Maryland on the client s behalf. The defendants in this matter defaulted and a damages hearing was held in January Vault.com Inc.

3 of At the hearing MLA attorneys presented evidence of the client s damages and argued for punitive damages. The court awarded $5,000 in actual and punitive damages, as well as attorneys fees for both MLA and the Washington Lawyers Committee. MLA successfully represented the best interest of a Minor in a contentious custody battle between his parents. After spending months investigating the case, the firm represented the Minor in a three-day trial. Under a cross-examination, the mother made key concessions that influenced the court s decision. MLA also examined the Minor, who testified he would like to live with his mother. MLA then examined the father to establish that he could provide a safe and stable home to the Minor should he move in with him. After the trial, the parties and the Guardian ad litem (GAL) submitted written findings of fact and conclusions of law. Because of the mother s poor decision-making, the GAL recommended that the father become the primary custodian of the Minor during the academic year with the mother having liberal visitation and both parties having joint legal custody. Given the Minor s lack of familiarity with his father and his express wish to live with his mother, this recommendation would present an uphill battle. After 60 days of consideration, the Court issued an order implementing the recommendation of the GAL. List up to three pro bono matters that are highlights (e.g., a Supreme Court case). Please limit your answer to a short paragraph per matter. Washington, DC attorneys filed an amicus curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of pro bono clients Violence Policy Center and the Police Chiefs for the cities of Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Seattle. The brief supported the District of Columbia s challenge to a recent DC Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that invoked the Second Amendment to strike down several gun control laws, specifically DC s handgun law. (See District of Columbia v. Heller). MLA brought an action in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of seven immigrant workers seeking to recover unpaid overtime wages. The clients, all refugees or asylees from Uganda, Chad, Ethiopia, Kenya, or Togo, worked as care givers for local group home assisted living facilities. Although the clients routinely worked as many as 72 hours per week at the facilities, they never received overtime wages. In the complaint, MLA sought to recover unpaid wages and damages under the Maryland Wage and Hour Law, the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law, and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. In October 2012, after several rounds of negotiations, the defendants agreed to pay $80,000 for unpaid wages, damages, legal fees, and expenses. Through the settlement, the defendants agreed to pay the clients more than $35,000 for unpaid overtime wages, plus nearly $34,000 in damages and $11,000 for fees and costs. On vember 5, 2012, the United States District Court approved the settlement. Two days later, the defendants paid the settlement amounts in full. MLA won a decision awarding service benefits that had previously been denied by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to a pro bono veteran client in a drawn-out appeals process. The client, a former U.S. Navy service member, had earned benefits for a period during which he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest, which had been issued without his knowledge. Based on VA regulations prohibiting the award of benefits to fleeing felons, the VA determined that the client was indebted to the VA for the amount of benefits that had been paid during the warrant period, despite the fact that the client was unaware of the warrant and did not attempt to evade the law. The client applied for a waiver of the indebtedness on equitable grounds based on his indigent status and the absence of fault on his part for the creation of the debt. The VA denied the waiver application and subsequently recovered the funds by reducing the client s future VA benefits payments. The client appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). In August 2010, the Denver team took the case at the CAVC through the Veterans Pro Bono Consortium Program, based on Washington DC, which assigns complex cases pending before that Court to volunteer lawyers to provide help to indigent veterans in need of legal assistance. The team first was able to successfully negotiate a remand to the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA) due to the need to develop additional evidence related to the circumstances of the warrant s issuance. Once additional evidence was developed, it was submitted to the BVA along with a brief arguing why as a matter of law the VA should reverse its decision to deny the waiver out of equity and good conscience, the applicable VA standard for waiver. Ultimately, the BVA granted the relief requested, finding that a VA failure to return the benefits to the client would cause him undue hardship based on his financial inability to support himself. Accordingly, the Board ordered full payment of the benefits to which the client was entitled. Subsequent letters from the client have illustrated his tremendous appreciation of the efforts of the Denver team in resolving his longstanding dispute with the VA. The victory represents a great outcome through diligence, hard work and creative lawyering from the Denver team on behalf of this U.S. veteran client.
