Pro Bono Partner Agency Case Studies
"Human Rights First is currently working with a team at Allen Matkins to provide pro bono representation for a woman who fled El Salvador after suffering from death threats and a severe beating on account of her work as a political activist. High quality legal representation can mean the difference between life and death, and Human Rights First is proud to partner with Allen Matkins as they fight for their client and her young son’s right to asylum in the United States."
-- Jenna Gilbert, Staff Attorney
"Partnering with Allen Matkins attorneys, the Alliance for Children’s Rights recently obtained a great result in a high profile litigation matter – one that will benefit foster youth at community colleges for years to come. We are so pleased to have Allen Matkins on board with our cause and look forward to partnering together again!"
-- Laura Streimer, Legal Director
"The SCRA program of the San Diego County Bar Association was set up to provide limited pro bono legal assistance to active duty military service members who are named in a civil lawsuit or family court matter. Through this program, Allen Matkins has applied for stays in several proceedings pursuant to the Service Members Civil Relief Act, thus protecting active duty service members from default judgments at a time when they are serving their country."
"Allen Matkins has provided Episcopal Community Services outstanding pro bono guidance and support in crafting and negotiating master leases at six of our eleven supportive housing sites, ensuring that our formerly homeless residents' interests will be served well into the future. We continue also to benefit occasionally by smart and sensitive counsel in response to challenging organizational and resident concerns."
