Make Your Tax Deductible Donation to PLC Today 

With your support, the Public Law Center has made tremendous impact on the lives of Orange County residents since its beginnings as Amicus Publico in 1981. Today, PLC's staff of 30 work with a board of 38 Orange County leaders and over 1,400 dedicated volunteers to deliver $20 million worth of life changing pro bono services to those in need.
Throughout the year and especially during the holidays, our hearts and minds are filled with the stories of seniors we protected from homelessness, veterans we honored by securing their hard-earned benefits, domestic violence survivors we assisted as they put their lives back together, and immigrants we helped become U.S. citizens.

We are grateful when our pro bono model and the amazing work of our pro bono attorneys and firms are recognized by the media and other institutions. Just last week, the American Lawyer featured one of our pro bono cases in its Firms Give Back During the Holiday Season article.
The story highlights an ongoing case led by incoming PLC President Aaron Malo of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP: "[Sheppard Mullin] is representing a Vietnam veteran who has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, in an eviction action brought against him by the board at his senior living facility in Southern California. Sheppard Mullin and the attorneys at the Public Law Center of Orange County assert that the facility and its parent company need procedures in place to deal with disabled persons. A deposition of the veteran was scheduled the week before Christmas. The firm got it moved to after the new year."

We recognized Sheppard Mullin as PLC's Law Firm of the Year during our Volunteers for Justice Dinner and 35th Anniversary Celebration earlier this year. And Aaron recognized the impact PLC has on his community earlier this month by matching all gifts during #GivingTuesday. In so doing, Aaron doubled the $19,000 donations we received with his own check for $19,000, our largest single donation by an individual ever!

Aaron is joined on the PLC Board next year by so many others who engage with us as leaders, donors, and volunteer attorneys. They ensure that PLC is a great steward of the precious resources donors and volunteers like you provide. Please take this opportunity to join Aaron in advancing PLC's pro bono success story with a tax deductible donation in 2016.
