Lawyers Who Love Access to Justice: Pillsbury Lands in First Place!‚Äč

Nancy Aeling, Esq.

2019 Distinguished Pro Bono Attorney of the Year

Between March 11-22, 2019, San Diego law firms came together to raise necessary funds to provide access to justice for immigrant victims of human and civil rights violations. Participating firms raised $21,692, exceeding the campaign goal of $20,000, and enabled Casa Cornelia to increase life-changing free legal services to vulnerable members of our San Diego community.

Through the leadership of Partner Steven Hamilton, Esq. and Director of Administration Brandon Randolph, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP (Pillsbury) landed first place by raising the most funds per attorney. 

We are grateful to all the firms that participated in the program, including Best Best & Krieger LLP, Foley & Lardner LLP, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP, Paul Hastings LLP, Pillsbury LLP, and Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP. Thank you for supporting pro bono services and congratulations!
