Super Lawyers Profiles MoFo's Pro Bono Commitments

16 May 2014

On May 12, Super Lawyers profiled MoFo’s pro bono program in a special digital edition honoring the winners of the 2013 Super Lawyers Pro Bono Awards. The annual awards honor individual lawyers, law firms, law students, law schools, and other institutions in the legal profession that provide exemplary volunteer legal services to the poor, underrepresented, or exploited.

Publisher Cindy Larson singled out MoFo as a firm “where attorneys aren’t afraid to take on everything from challenging DOMA to an asylum case for a persecuted lesbian couple from Cameroon.” In addition to these matters, the feature article highlighted MoFo’s work on behalf of U.S. veterans, including the firm’s involvement with Vets in Tech; MoFo’s leadership in the Right to Civil Counsel movement; the firm’s advocacy for reforms of the use of solitary confinement in New York state prisons; and MoFo’s role in The Bay Lights project.
