Foley & Lardner was honored with the 2020 Pro Bono Law Firm Award by the PAIR Project in Boston. Foley has provided years of pro bono service to the PAIR Project on asylum cases, ensuring that vulnerable asylum seekers would have access to counsel.
“Your firm’s pro bono work on over 15 asylum cases since 2001-- including 8 current active cases -- and dedication to defend the rights and safety of immigrants fleeing extreme violence is incredible. Your exemplary efforts to protect these vulnerable clients reflects the dedication and support that Foley & Lardner has given to PAIR and its clients throughout the years. PAIR is grateful for our partnership and looks forward to honoring the firm at the 2020 PAIR Gala,” said PAIR Project Executive Director Anita Sharma.
PAIR provides free immigration services to indigent asylum seekers and detained immigrants, assuring fairness and access to justice.
