Since 1998, the agency has taken over 120 prisoner circumstances involving attorneys from Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and the Silicon Valley offices. Dechert’s particular person cases often contain issues of extreme force, failure to protect and deliberate indifference to medical wants. Over the years, Dechert has developed a strong practice of representing victims of human trafficking. We have helped victims obtain immigration aid in addition to helped them seek compensation from their traffickers. Our work on these cases sometimes includes securing immigration relief in the form of T-Visas for the victims as nicely as seeking unpaid wages and damages from the traffickers. In Philadelphia, we have a Landlord Tenant Pro Bono Practice Group, which routinely takes referrals from our group companions, including Community Legal Services and Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program, to characterize tenants in Municipal Court eviction hearings.
