“I always wanted to be a lawyer so that I could help people... We’re really privileged to be at this firm where we are able to do systemic change work throughout the state and throughout the country around accessing justice for low-income litigants.”
“I’m focused now on making sure that survivors and nonprofits that work most closely with survivors are aware of the change in the law and that they can use it to remove some of those barriers that are holding them back.”
"There are incredible opportunities to be had both substantively, in various areas of law, and also professionally, to develop a wide variety of skills as a lawyer and to do good for the community while working on these cases."
“I think one of the great aspects of the Pro Bono Program is that it enables attorneys, sometimes even at more junior levels, to take a real leadership role in their cases.”

Each year, in our work for more than 300 pro bono clients, Mintz collaborates with legal services entities to represent individuals and families, counsels nonprofit organizations, and challenges inequities through landmark litigation. In our inaugural pro bono portfolio, we bring you some of the stories of clients who have faced discrimination, threats to their civil liberties, and other extraordinary hardships and of organizations dedicated to serving the most vulnerable among us.
Mintz is honored to receive the 2023 Beacon of Justice award from the National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA) for our pro bono work related to LGBTQ+, gender, and racial equity.
