3 List up to three representative examples of your firm s pro bono matters since Please limit your answer to a short paragraph per matter. Asylum and Immigration Cases: A major focus of Sutherland s pro bono program has been representation of individuals in asylum cases and other immigration proceedings. In 2012, we worked on cases referred by Catholic Charities (DC and Atlanta), KIND, Washington Lawyers Committee, Georgia Asylum & Immigration Network, and other agencies. Recent cases have involved torture, gang rape and female genital mutilation in Sierra Leone, a target of political persecution in Colombia, and rape in Uganda. Besides asylum cases, we also assist victims of domestic violence with VAWA petitions; prepare U visa petitions for victims of crime and T visa petitions for victims of human trafficking; and represent unaccompanied minors in obtaining Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. Income Tax Assistance for the Poor: Sutherland participates in several programs aimed at assisting low-income families with the preparation of their federal and state income tax returns. Sutherland has partnered with the Prosperity Campaign of the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help prepare income tax returns at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site over the past several years. Sutherland tax lawyers, in partnership with Atlanta Legal Aid, assist low-income clients in addressing income tax issues resulting from cancellation of debt in conjunction with mortgage foreclosures. We also work with the Georgia State University Tax Clinic to take on cases for indigent taxpayers who have disputes with the Internal Revenue Service. Domestic Violence Cases: After receiving training from legal service providers specializing in the area, Sutherland attorneys assist victims of intimate partner violence/stalking by providing representation in civil Temporary Protective Order hearings. If children are involved, we address issues of child support and visitation/custody. 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 represented an indigent former trustee of a family trust in a case decided in the United States Supreme Court in The client made loans from the trust to businesses he controlled. Although the loans were repaid with interest, and a state court had found that he had not acted with apparent malice, that court found a breach of fiduciary duty through self-dealing and awarded the other beneficiaries a judgment against him. A bankruptcy court found this debt nondischargeable as arising from defalcation by a fiduciary. The district court affirmed, as did the Eleventh Circuit, noting a split in the circuits on the mental state required for the defalcation exception to discharge. The Emory Law School Supreme Court Advocacy Project asked for our help. We filed a petition for certiorari, which was granted, and briefed the matter. Our partner, Tom Byrne, argued the case in March, 2013, and the Court issued an opinion finding in favor of our client, 9 0, in May, We obtained political asylum for our client from Uganda who had suffered brutal persecution by Ugandan military officers due to her membership in the opposition political group, her advocacy on behalf of women who suffered similar abuses, and allegations of homosexuality in a country where homosexuality is criminalized. She was unlawfully detained, beaten and raped on multiple occasions. After a particularly violent attack in April 2010, she fled to the United States because she feared she was going to be killed if she remained in Uganda. She was detained upon arrival here because she entered the country using an invalid visa. After a hearing, the Arlington Immigration Court granted our petition for asylum. Over two and a half years after fleeing Uganda, our client no longer has to fear deportation and can begin the process of bringing her children to this country. The Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law referred a federal prison inmate to us for assistance in a parole hearing. He had been denied parole in the original hearing but a new hearing was granted based on the Committee s argument that the wrong standards had been applied. The inmate had served more than 20 years for a homicide and had made a failed escape attempt 12 years ago, and the hearing officer initially announced an intention to deny parole. But we successfully convinced the hearing officer to hear from witnesses that had not been heard in the original hearing and persuaded her that our client was a transformed individual who was ready to be a productive member of society, and after the hearing she granted parole. Our client s family is eagerly awaiting his release, and he has employment waiting for him.

Directly aimed at increasing diversity within the legal profession, Sutherland Scholars is a summer program that introduces minority pre-law students to the rigors of law school. During a series of four-hour classes, students from historically black colleges brief cases, complete an introductory contracts course, draft study outlines, and take a final exam. Launched in 2005, the program is offered at no cost in both Atlanta and Washington, DC Sutherland attorneys and other legal professionals conduct the classes. Service Juris Day. Teams of Sutherland attorneys, summer associates, and staff join other lawyers, judges, law students, and members of the legal industry for a hands-on volunteer experience. Hundreds of volunteers join together to improve the Atlanta community. In addition to sweat-equity, Sutherland provides leadership and financial support for this effort. StreetLaw. Sutherland attorneys joined a client s in-house legal department to go into high school classrooms and teach students about contracts and negotiation skills as part of the StreetLaw program to blend legal content with innovative hands-on teaching strategies that actively engage students and program participants in the learning process. Street Law program participants benefit from real-life lessons and insights, which they can use to effect positive change for the rest of their lives. A number of our lawyers are active in Inns of Court operated at various law schools. What non-law related volunteer opportunities does your firm offer? For example, list any work with high school students and non-legal volunteerism for organizations like Habitat for Humanity. Sutherland Junior College was established by Sutherland in 2006 to mentor high school juniors who have the aptitude to attend college but have not made it a goal for financial, cultural, and other reasons. The program encourages these students to set college as a goal by helping them prepare for the SAT, taking them to visit college campuses, assisting with their college applications, providing information about financial aid, and helping them develop life skills essential to success. Each student is assigned an attorney or staff member as a mentor. Saturday classes and summer internships have been part of the program.
