Skadden Arps' Washington D.C. office has announced that it is teaming up with the in-house teams of LivingSocial, Cisco Systems and Northrop Grumman and three legal aid organizations to assist the city's low-income residents with legal needs.

Skadden Announces New Pro Bono Initiative


The initiative has been termed the “Impact Project” and the aim is to bring a more formal structure to the effort on behalf of the Legal Aid Society of D.C., Bread for the City and Children's Law Center.

This pro bono initiative will focus on three specific areas: domestic violence, guardians ad litem for children and housing. The Legal Aid Society of D.C. will have attorneys representing domestic violence victims who are seeking protection
orders.

The Children's Law Center will have attorneys who will serve as guardians ad litem for children going through contested custody cases. Bread for the City will have attorneys representing indigent families who are facing eviction or are living in sub-standard rental housing. The attorneys will also work with tenant organizations who are working on preserving affordable housing.
