Our Los Angeles office makes an impact by advocating for vulnerable and marginalized populations in the greater Southern California region. From foster children to asylum seekers to immigrant detainees, our clients need access to justice that our teams provide. We support small businesses and nonprofits, and we represent clients in court-appointed matters from all the federal pro bono panels and before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Read on to learn about some of our cases and how they affected the lawyers who delivered success.

Partnership with Alliance for Children’s Rights Unites Foster Children with Adoptive Parents

Jenner & Block Lawyers Win Asylum for Indigenous Guatemalan

“Doing pro bono work has helped me develop and diversify my skillset and made me feel more connected to my community. Many people in the immigration system don’t have access to counsel, and many are here in Southern California. Providing legal services to one family in need was a gratifying experience that has driven me to help others in the immigration system who can’t afford counsel.”
