THE SCOOP Does your firm have a pro bono policy? Can associates bring pro bono matters of interest to the firm? How does the firm decide whether to take on a pro bono matter? Each pro bono matter is approved by the office pro bono committee chair, based on a determination that the matter qualifies as pro bono and constitutes an appropriate expenditure of the firm s resources. Has the firm signed on to the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge? What are some of the areas of law in which your firm has performed pro bono legal work since 2012? Asylum, Bankruptcy, Civil rights, Consumer law and small claims court, Death penalty defense, Disability benefits, Domestic violence, Education, Elder law, Employment, Environment, Fair housing/tenants rights, Family law, First Amendment and constitutional issues, Immigration, Indigent criminal defense, Juvenile justice reform/children s rights, Nonprofit corporate law, Nonprofit incorporation/tax exemptions, Nonprofit intellectual property, Prisoners rights, Probate law, Real estate transactions, The arts and historic preservation, Veterans benefits/appeals, Voting rights Are there areas of law in which, as a matter of policy or practice, your firm does not perform pro bono work?

Atlanta Legal Aid Society Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation Public Law Center Kids in Need of Defense ABA Military Pro Bono Project Human Rights Watch Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts Greater Richmond Bar Foundation Legal Counsel for the Elderly Tahirih Justice Center List up to three representative examples of your firm s pro bono matters since Please limit your answer to a short paragraph per matter. Working with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), our volunteer lawyers in Atlanta, New York, Orange County, Tysons Corner and Washington, DC offices represent unaccompanied children in immigration proceedings. These children are typically victims of trafficking or are fleeing severe abuse, abandonment, forced marriage, exploitation, or other human rights abuses. In addition to providing pro bono representation to the children, Troutman Sanders worked with KIND to sponsor the 4th Annual Advocacy Day where dozens of volunteers from around the country spent an afternoon talking to members of Congress about the urgent need for more funding to address the overwhelming increase in the numbers of children crossing our borders alone. Another example of a pro bono effort to assist children involves responding to subpoenas that target the records and Vault.com Inc.

3 files of therapists who represent child abuse/neglect victims. Working with several local non-profit organizations, our volunteer lawyers help prevent confidential information between therapists and abused children from being disclosed. Volunteer lawyers in multiple offices worked on amici briefs filed in the United States Supreme Court, including supporting a birth parent in a custody/adoption suit involving the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1977; seeking review of Environmental Protection Agency regulations relating to greenhouse gases as air pollutants under the Clean Air Act; and representing local government officials in a suit filed by a convicted rapist who challenged state DNA arrest laws. Additionally, we assisted the Washington Lawyer s Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs on two amici briefs filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on behalf of WLC s Fair Housing Project. Both cases addressed important issues regarding equal access to housing for individuals with disabilities. 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. We represent a Georgia Death Row inmate in a Habeas Corpus action currently pending in Butts County, Georgia. Our client s claims include constitutional challenges to his conviction and sentencing, as well as a broad ineffective assistance of counsel ( IAC ) claim. The IAC claim asserts that trial counsel failed to adequately investigate or prepare his case or present his defense at trial, including a failure to present an adequate showing of mitigation during the sentencing phase. Particularly, the client s significant trauma history was inadequately addressed by trial counsel. A threeday evidentiary hearing took place in early 2013 and the matter is currently under consideration by the Court. Two sisters from Guatemala who were apprehended entering the United States are being assisted by our attorneys to obtain both Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and permanent residency. The children (ages 10 and 12) are staying with their mother and stepfather while the case is pending. The mother came here to escape a domestic violence situation and left the children with a family member who subsequently neglected them. Earlier this year, the Immigration Court terminated the removal proceedings against the girls in order that they may pursue applications for SIJS and permanent residency with U.S. Customs and Immigration Services. If all goes well, the girls will be able to apply for U.S. citizenship 4 years after obtaining permanent residency We assisted a local nonprofit needing assistance with negotiating a ground lease to open a day camp for disabled children, wounded warriors and families of fallen soldiers. We also represented the client before the local planning commission and were able to obtain the conditional use permit needed to allow them to proceed with their plans.

Please add any additional information about your firm s pro bono program. Each year, our lawyers and paralegals devote thousands of hours to pro bono legal services. They serve the legal needs of a wide range of clients from individuals faced with eviction from their homes, to families seeking educational services for their special needs children, to non-profits trying to get organized. Helping clients who cannot afford to pay for legal services is not only in the finest tradition of our profession, it is the right thing to do. We encourage each lawyer to do pro bono legal work. Pro bono hours are viewed favorably in performance reviews and all attorneys are required to report their pro bono hours, just as they are required to report their billable hours. Each office has a pro bono committee that includes partners and associates. While we believe that each lawyer should make his or her own personal decision for public service, the committee searches for appropriate pro bono legal work and other public service opportunities and tries to match them to our lawyers and staff. Each committee chair approves pro bono matters in his or her office. With the assistance of the firm s pro bono manger, the firmwide chair oversees the firm s pro bono program, and provides information and coordination to each office pro bono committee. Pro bono legal services are considered for purposes of lawyer evaluation. The firm expects each lawyer to devote a minimum of 50 hours per year to pro bono legal services. Hours charged to pro bono files (up to a maximum of 50 hours per year) are included as a credit toward the minimum billable hours expected of attorneys. Hours in excess of 50 are allowable with prior approval by the Pro Bono and Associate Review Committees. We are proud of all of our professionals who devote their time and talents to serving our fellow citizens. Visit for company rankings, ratings and reviews to learn what it s really like to work in an industry or company and how to position yourself to land that job. 631
