Our pro bono work

We worked with the Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid Minnesota Disability Law Center on a subminimum wage project. The data collected by our team helps the Disability Law Center better protect the disabled in our state.  

Our professional services staff was applauded by the firm for contributions to the pro bono work done on behalf of the Tahirih Justice Center.  This important work looked at child marriage injustices, and resulted in a law raising the minimum age for marriage to 18 (except in the case of emancipated minors).  

Our community outreach

We partner with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board through its Park Stewards Program to help maintain, nurture, and protect parks and gardens in our community. Quarterly, we spend time weeding, mulching, planting, and beautifying Gateway Park located in downtown Minneapolis.
