After transitioning from a career spanning 30 years practicing international trade law, George Grandison devotes his time to the firm’s pro bono practice and, in particular, the coordination of the firm's signature pro bono Immigrant Children’s Project.  In this role, George works with Steptoe's pro bono team to provide advice and representation for immigrant children, young adults, and families who are victims of human trafficking, violent crime, abuse, abandonment or neglect, or who are threatened with persecution in their home country. On average, Steptoe has more than 50 active representations of immigrant children, young adults, and families being handled by lawyers on a pro bono basis firm wide. In addition to coordinating the firm’s Immigrant Children’s Project, George has also provided pro bono legal advice and assistance to the Women's Refugee Commission in its work advocating for changes in federal legislation and in administrative and enforcement procedures to protect the interests of immigrant children and families.
