Law firms are defined by the values they follow and the clients they serve. From its inception, O'Melveny has channeled the creativity and passion of its lawyers into public interest efforts that benefit the poor and powerless in local communities and society at large.
O'Melveny's pro bono program focuses on the issues of the day, the concerns that are directly impacting the lives of the people in the communities in which we live and work. If you want to know what we are working on, just pick up a newspaper and look at the most pressing problems confronting our society—housing, immigration, disaster relief, civil rights—these are the issues to which we are responding.
Our lawyers help to meet the life-saving needs of the under-served in ways that only attorneys can. From individual eviction proceedings that protect against unjust homelessness to constitutional battles in the US Supreme Court that protect civil rights for the next generation, O'Melveny lawyers are using their legal skills to preserve the democratic rights of those who otherwise would have no voice, and whose access to justice would be out of reach.
At O'Melveny, we do not differentiate between the representation of a struggling indigent family and the representation of a long-time corporate client. We believe that all of our clients deserve fairness, justice and the best effort we can give them.
