Lauren Mendolera, Pro Bono Hero

Lauren Mendolera, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Lauren Mendolera, an associate at Sullivan and Cromwell, is a consistent pro bono volunteer with the Federal Pro Se Legal Assistance Project.  Along with other invaluable pro bono attorney volunteers, Lauren helps the Project increase the number of clients to whom we offer unbundled legal services.  Lauren recently assisted a pro se plaintiff by patiently explaining aspects of federal procedure and federal jurisdiction—complicated concepts that many of the Project’s pro se litigants find opaque without a lawyer’s assistance.  Lauren provided the client tools helpful to evaluating his claims and to strategizing the course of his lawsuit.  The City Bar Justice Center is grateful for Lauren’s continuing dedication to the Project.
