Empowering Survivors: Spotlight on Mintz’s Pro Bono Champion, Nick Butto

Associate Nicholas Butto was recently profiled by Sanctuary for Families for his pro bono work representing victims of gender-based violence. Nick’s dedicated efforts range from co-counseling with Family Law attorneys on Orders of Protection and custody trials, to drafting motions, to representing survivors in asylum claims.

Associate Program Director of the Family Law Project Lindsey Song said, “Nick was able to get a 5-year OP on consent, which in itself can be very challenging as it requires the abuser to make significant admissions on the record. Nick is not only super competent, organized, and effective, he is also just so kind, lovely, and easy to talk to. It is clear how comfortable our client feels going to him with any concerns or questions!”

Member and Chair of the Pro Bono Committee Susan Finegan also commented, “Nick is so committed to his pro bono clients. His enthusiasm for the work has encouraged so many other attorneys in the New York Office to work with Sanctuary and its deserving clients.”
