Featured Articles FIRM REPRESENTS OPPORTUNITY FUND IN MERGER TRANSACTION By: Tzung-Ping Wei, Associate (Palo Alto) In November 2010, a longtime pro bono client of the firm, Opportunity Fund of Northern California (OFNC), approached us for help on a merger with another pro bono organization, Silicon Valley Microfinance Network (SVMN). OFNC works Tzung-Ping Wei to provide microloans and micro-savings to small business owners, low-income families, and high-impact community real estate developments in the San Francisco Bay Area. SVMN provides financial education to people in the Bay Area in an effort to increase the impact of microfinance in reducing global poverty. Merging SVMN into OFNC would enable the two organizations to work hand-inhand to provide microloans and financial education to small business owners and low-income families, helping them earn, save, and invest in their future. The firm assisted OFNC in all aspects of the transaction, including due diligence, drafting and negotiating the merger agreement, and obtaining required government clearances and third-party consents. In order to address SVMNвЂ™s concern that its interests and mission be protected and preserved post-merger, OFNC established an advisory board whose purpose would be to provide support to the operation of the SVMN business by OFNC. SVMN would be allowed to maintain its brand and continue its speaker series, education courses, and other programs, including highly popular wine events. Timing was a particular concern, as the parties wanted to complete the merger before the end of the year. Thus, it was important for us to be mindful of certain requirements for nonprofit mergers, such as giving the attorney general 20 days notice prior to the consummation of the merger, as well as the practical reality of coordinating a closing around yearend holiday schedules. Fortunately, we were able to line up everything we needed before people left for the holidays, and the parties successfully merged on December 30, 2010. The Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati pro bono team advising OFNC included Michael Russell and senior paralegal Nancy Bouch, and we all were grateful that we could help OFNC to better implement its mission. WINNING CASES FOR INDIGENT CLIENTS WSGR lawyers are committed to helping individuals obtain justice in a wide variety of forums, including state and federal court, federal administrative proceedings, and state agencies. Here are a few stories from our offices demonstrating how firm lawyers have made a profound difference in the lives of their clients. The * symbol is used to indicate that names have been changed for privacy purposes. FIRM SECURES CUSTODY OF CHILD FOR PRO BONO CLIENT By Abraham DeLaO, Associate (Austin) The firm represented Lucinda,* a Mexican woman, in a divorce and child custody suit initiated by her husband, Johnny.* The divorce petition filed by Johnny, an American citizen, sought sole custody of the coupleвЂ™s one-year-old son and all marital assets; leaving Lucinda childless and penniless. Without pro bono representation, Lucinda faced a real possibility of having her son taken from her because she was unaware of her rights and without the means or ability to mount a legal defense. Nonetheless, Lucinda was determined to keep her son. During the marriage, Lucinda was the victim of repeated instances of domestic violence by Johnny. Lucinda had refrained from reporting these incidents to the police for fear of possible deportation and separation from her son. However, Lucinda finally called the police during an incident where Johnny assaulted her and forcibly took possession of the child. The police arrested Johnny but, in retaliation for Lucinda calling the police against him, he quickly filed for divorce and sole custody of the child within hours of posting bail. Since Johnny had denied Lucinda access to all bank accounts, he controlled the entire marital estate as his own. Lucinda had no funds other than her salary as a waitperson 3 with which to support herself and the child. She had no hopes of affording counsel. A legal aid provider referred the case to WSGR attorneys who agreed to represent Lucinda. WSGR filed a response seeking sole custody for Lucinda as well as child support and a just division of the marital estate. Emily was granted a U nonimmigrant visa by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and received her employment authorization card. Emily can now remain and work in the United States legally, and looks forward to all the opportunities that await her. Lucinda cautioned her WSGR attorneys that Johnny was extremely determined to prevent her from prevailing and would use the proceeds from his heating and cooling business to do so. For the next several months, Johnny responded to WSGR discovery requests by hiding assets, changing counsel on two occasions, menacing Lucinda with the threat of physical harm and deportation, and eventually resorting to denying paternity of the coupleвЂ™s child. Despite dealing with three opposing law firms and chicanery by Johnny, LucindaвЂ™s team from WSGR continued to advance the suit and build a case establishing a favorable value of the community estate and highlighting conduct by Johnny that was contrary to the best interests of the child. Whitney Lau and I represented Emily in connection with her U nonimmigrant visa application. We received invaluable assistance from interpreter Jessica McBride and administrative assistants Peggy Baird and Raya Clor. Mark Parnes, Mark Warnick, Caroline Wilson, and former associate Freeda Lugo also provided advice and support. On the eve of trial, Johnny agreed to grant Lucinda managing conservatorship of the child with no visitation by Johnny for two years, a cash settlement for LucindaвЂ™s portion of the community estate, and retroactive and future child- support payments. Lucinda continues working as a waitperson and enjoys caring for her son. Former Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati associate Luiz von Paumgartten and I represented Lucinda with support from senior paralegal Jonathan Rich and legal secretaries Martha Gomez and Grace Herrera. FIRM WINS U NONIMMIGRANT VISA STATUS FOR MEXICAN VICTIM OF PERSECUTION AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE By Tracy Rubin, Associate (Palo Alto) The firm won U nonimmigrant visa status for Emily,* a Mexican transgender woman who left Mexico after suffering discrimination and persecution at the hands of Mexican soldiers and police. After Emily arrived in the United States, she met Anthony,* and they started living together. Anthony soon became physically and verbally abusive, even trying to strangle her on one occasion. Emily reported the crime to the police. Anthony later pled guilty to felony domestic violence and was ultimately deported to Mexico on a different charge. From Mexico, Anthony has continued to threaten Emily. 4 FIRM WINS ASYLUM FOR GUATEMALAN VICTIM OF ABUSE By Allison Moser, Associate (Palo Alto) A pro bono team from Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati won asylum for Corina Garcia,* a 57-year-old Guatemalan woman of Mayan descent. Corina spent more than half of her life enduring physical and mental abuse by her common-law husband, her father, and other males in Guatemala. When she was young, her father physically beat her and verbally assaulted her on a regular basis. Then, as a young woman, she was brutally raped and attacked by an unidentified Guatemalan man, who left her pregnant and alone. The abuse intensified when CorinaвЂ™s common-law husband mentally and physically abused her on a daily basis, including cutting her with a machete, striking her with blunt objects, and threatening her life. When her efforts to leave her husband and obtain protection from the Guatemalan authorities failed, Corina was left with no choice but to risk escaping to the United States to save her own lifeвЂ”a wrenching decision, because in leaving, she would have to abandon her family, including her two young children. In light of pastвЂ”and the threat of futureвЂ”abuse, CorinaвЂ™s membership in an identifiable social group of Guatemalan Mayan women who are treated as property in their domestic relationships, the failure of the Guatemalan government to adequately offer protection from such abuse, and GuatemalaвЂ™s documented record of apathy towards domestic violence, the San Francisco asylum officer found that CorinaвЂ™s fear of further persecution and death in Guatemala was wellfounded and a proper basis for granting asylum. Joseph Fiorino and I represented Corina, with assistance from Mark Parnes, interpreters Virginia Mendoza and Kara Nossardi, summer associate Allison Crow, and legal secretary Lindi Reagan. FIRM OBTAINS U NONIMMIGRANT VISA FOR VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FROM GUATEMALA By Maulik Shah, Associate (San Francisco) WSGR successfully obtained a U nonimmigrant Visa for Natalia Rosales.* A U nonimmigrant visa provides immigration status to noncitizen crime victims who are assisting or are willing to assist authorities in investigating crimes. Fleeing a lifetime of abuse in Guatemala, Ms. Rosales came to the U.S. for a better life. Unfortunately, she became the victim of domestic violence. Overcoming her own fears, she courageously assisted the police and the district attorney with their investigation and prosecution of the individual who abused her and her young daughter. Upon referral from Bay Area Legal Aid, the firm accepted Ms. RosalesвЂ™ case in May 2010 and submitted her application in June 2010. In October 2010, based upon WSGRвЂ™s submission and without any request for additional documentation, USCIS approved Ms. RosalesвЂ™ application and granted her work authorization. Ms. Rosales was overjoyed that she would be able to legally work to provide for her children and eventually pursue a path to citizenship. I represented Ms. Rosales in this matter with assistance from legal secretary Liz Blackey and with guidance from Catherine Ward-Seitz and Genevieve Richardson of Bay Area Legal Aid. FIRM SECURES ASYLUM FOR PRO BONO CLIENT FROM ERITREA By Mark Padilla, Associate (Palo Alto) Hans Kim, Daniel Gorback, and I represented an Eritrean man in a pro bono asylum case, a referral from the LawyersвЂ™ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area. After a hearing on the merits of the case, the U.S. immigration court granted asylum to the client, a supporter of U.S. activities, after finding that he faced a legitimate fear of future persecution in his home country of Eritrea. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security subsequently waived its right to appeal the case. The client now lives peacefully in the U.S. without the threats to his life that he faced in Eritrea. The pro bono legal team representing the asylum applicant was assisted by Mark Parnes, Mark Warnick, Caroline Wilson, and L. David Nefouse with additional assistance from paralegals Greg Sambor, Pat Skinner, and Sharon De Lorto. FIRM SECURES U NONIMMIGRANT VISA FOR MEXICAN VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE By Corina Cacovean, Associate (San Francisco) On November 1, 2010, the firm won U nonimmigrant visa status for a Mexican woman, Selena,* and her children. Selena endured years of domestic violence at the hands of her ex-husband Jose* in the United States, with the most violent incident occurring when Corina Cacovean she was pregnant with her third child. Selena reported the crime to the police and cooperated in JoseвЂ™s prosecution for domestic violence. Jose was convicted and ultimately deported back to Mexico on the same charge. Selena and her children were granted U nonimmigrant visa status by the USCIS, and she received employment authorization as well. Selena and her children remain in the United States legally and are grateful for all the opportunities ahead. SelenaвЂ™s oldest daughter said that the U visa was the best present she could receive for her QuinceaГ±era (15th birthday) and that she hopes to go to law school one day. I represented Selena in connection with her U nonimmigrant visa application with assistance from former associates Freeda Lugo and Pamela Glazner, and legal secretary Martha Carrillo. 5 Ongoing Pro Bono Matters WSGR attorneys provided the following nonprofit organizations pro bono legal assistance.
