Munger, Tolles & Olson partner Michael Soloff is a recipient of the Public Counsel’s 2021 Pro Bono Award.
Public Counsel, the world’s largest pro bono public interest law firm, said “the award recipients’ tireless dedication to its clients epitomize the life-changing legal work its volunteers handle daily.”
Messrs. Soloff and Dane volunteered their legal expertise to help tenants and were honored by Public Counsel’s Homelessness Prevention Law Project which serves people at risk of becoming chronically homeless. Their legal expertise helped families at risk of being homeless to stay in their homes during the pandemic.
Contributing to the community through pro bono work and other forms of volunteerism is a core tenet of the culture at Munger Tolles. The firm encourages its attorneys to choose pro bono matters that they care about deeply and its lawyers have made an impact on many social issues through pro bono advocacy, including veterans rights, civil liberties, affordable housing and LGBT rights, among others.
