The firm's attorneys have taken an active role in pro bono projects. Examples include:
We have twice partnered with Centurion Ministries, an innocence project based in Princeton, New Jersey, and helped set free two innocent wrongfully convicted men (Michael Austin and Walter Lomax) who served 27 and 39 years for crimes they did not commit.
Nathans & Biddle, LLP, persuaded a Baltimore federal judge to enter a temporary restraining order barring the Federal Bureau of Prisons ("BOP") from transferring a client from a local halfway house, to an out of state federal prison, after the BOP changed the eligibility requirements.
The firm also paired with the Maryland Disability Law Center in a case involving representation of a minor who was abused while residing in a state mental health facility. After considerable negotiation, the client received a substantial settlement.
