    We are devastated at the loss of our beloved colleague, Melanie Kushnir.  Melanie was a passionate believer in justice.  She was a bright light and inspiration to clients, attorneys, law students, and co-workers.  Her spirit, love of life, and dedication to justice was unmistakable.

    Melanie’s commitment to others spanned her entire legal career.  Upon graduating from Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, she served as an Assistant Public Guardian, representing abused and neglected children for the Cook County Public Guardian’s Office.  Following that important work, Melanie served as an Assistant Staff Counsel at the American Bar Association Center for Pro Bono.  In that role, she provided support and planning advice to pro bono and legal service program directors, bar association leaders, law school public service faculty and administrators, and law firm pro bono counsel seeking to strengthen the delivery of legal services to the poor and create opportunities for lawyers and law students to perform pro bono service.
