Cahill Pro Bono
For decades, Cahill lawyers have worked face to face with pro bono clients to provide individuals and families with access to justice and opportunity. Whether we are standing up for our clients in asylum, immigration, or criminal proceedings, representing vulnerable families in international custody disputes and domestic violence matters, submitting an amicus curiae brief to the U.S. Supreme Court or an international war crimes tribunal, or helping a military veteran start a small business with an international supply chain, all resources of the Firm are brought to bear to make a difference.

Our lawyers are encouraged to work on pro bono matters that support the causes they care about most, and through our various pro bono initiatives, including many that leverage our long-standing relationships with premier public service organizations, Cahill’s pro bono practice offers a wide array of opportunities to have an impact.
Each pro bono initiative is overseen by a dedicated Partner Advisor who serves as a mentor and experienced resource to associates who are handling matters within that particular initiative.
I can’t say enough about the massive help I received from Cahill, not only in starting my business, but also in building my confidence as I transitioned from the military. The Cahill team showed from day one they wanted to see me succeed. I am very thankful for everything they have done for me.
