The firm s Pro Bono Committee is made up of a mix of shareholders and associates from multiple offices. Every major office has at least one representative on the committee. 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? The firm s Pro Bono Partner evaluates each new matter to determine whether the matter falls under the firm s pro bono policy. The policy is consistent with ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 6.1. If the matter qualifies as pro bono and the firm is not conflicted, we will generally take it, subject to an additional evaluation of out-of-pocket costs for larger matters. 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, Community economic development, Consumer law and small claims court, Death penalty defense, Domestic violence, Education, Elder law, Employment, Environment, Fair housing/tenants rights, Family law, First Amendment and constitutional issues, Homeless advocacy, Immigration, Nonprofit corporate law, Nonprofit incorporation/tax exemptions, Nonprofit intellectual property, Prisoners rights, Public benefits, 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?

3 66 Humanity of Metro Denver, the Colorado Outward Bound School, and the Discovery Children s Museum in Las Vegas. 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. Brownstein partnered with the Migrant Farm Worker Division of Colorado Legal Services in a civil suit on behalf of four Peruvian migrant sheepherders. The migrant workers came to Colorado under H-2A visas to work at a sheep ranch, where they were subjected to abusive treatment and multiple violations of their employment contracts. Colorado Legal Services filed a civil suit on the migrant workers behalf for labor violations, tort claims, and violations of the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act. The case settled in the pre-trial phase and the herders now have legal T visa status, which ensures federal protection and benefits for human trafficking victims. Brownstein represented the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara in the Society s effort to obtain a land use permit for a new mosque in Goleta, California. The mosque was controversial with local residents. The firm s attorneys and land use planners successfully represented the Islamic Society before the city council and obtained the required entitlements for the new mosque. Brownstein represented the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado in a challenge to the Colorado Department of Corrections refusal to release Colorado s revised lethal injection protocol. The ACLU sought documents related to the execution procedure, including Colorado s lethal injection protocol. CDOC refused to provide access to these documents under the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act. The court determined that CODC abused its discretion and ordered public disclosure of the lethal injection protocol. The Colorado ACLU case has helped to lay the groundwork for similar lawsuits across the country contesting states efforts to shield their lethal injection procedures from disclosure.
