A key tenet of Gilbert’s philosophy is to “give back.” All of the lawyers and other employees at Gilbert engage in public service work. This includes participation in and support of public interest organizations, community initiatives, and local educational and charitable activities. Our commitment also includes substantial pro bono legal work.
Pro bono legal work at Gilbert runs the gamut. No case is too large or too small, and no adversary is too powerful. We have represented individual, institutional and government clients on a wide array of issues, including immigration, family law, torts, civil rights, housing, special education, insurance, and asylum. We have helped public service organizations assess their business risks and place their insurance coverage. We have represented civil rights organizations before the United States Supreme Court and many appellate courts. We have negotiated with foreign governments to secure the release of U.S. citizens improperly detained abroad. As with all of Gilbert’s matters, our goal in pro bono representation is to develop and implement strategic approaches that will solve our clients’ problems. We encourage our attorneys to seek pro bono work, and make our firm widely available to individuals and organizations who need expert legal assistance.
