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.
