The 2019 Pro Bono Hot List

The lawyers on our 2019 Pro Bono Hot List have used their legal expertise to take on some of the biggest issues of our time. The goal? As one honoree states, it’s to “hopefully increase the number of talented attorneys throughout the industry who become engaged on civic, social and political issues that affect all of us.” Whether advocating for the Sixth Amendment rights of a man on death row, securing the largest civil single-plaintiff human trafficking award in U.S. history, scoring a win for Georgia voters or going to bat for children in New York and New Mexico, these lawyers and law firms pair their purpose with their practice. These are their stories. — Lisa Helem, Editor-in-Chief
