"It is impossible to overstate the commitment of Arnold & Porter in the fight for racial equity and for equal justice. The firm's dedication to ensuring that the law is used in the services of good is built in its DNA. From James Earl Gideon in 1963 to ensure that the Sixth Amendment is a meaningful guarantee to its representation today of applicants for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the fight to ensure that the Census is complete and fair, and challenges to the abuses of solitary confinement, the firm has been a leader.
