Fredrikson & Byron attorneys Gail F. Brandt and Sandra Smalley-Fleming were recently recognized for their outstanding pro bono volunteer service performed in Special Juvenile Immigration Status cases for young women. This honor was part of the annual recognition coordinated by the Pro Bono Council of the MSBA Access to Justice Committee in partnership with the Minnesota Supreme Court to acknowledge volunteer pro bono attorneys who provided exceptional service to low-income clients and programs in the previous calendar year.

Brandt and Smalley-Fleming were among the 29 individuals who were recognized last month by the Minnesota Supreme Court with personal letters signed by Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea. The honorees were selected by the subcommittee who received nominations from legal service programs, law firms, corporations and public law offices.

Brandt is senior counsel in the firm’s Health Care and Life Sciences Groups. She advises physicians, group practices, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and other health providers through the complex regulatory framework to meet their business and professional goals.

Smalley-Fleming is a shareholder in the firm’s Litigation, Securities Litigation and Investment Management Groups. She maintains a national practice representing parties in cases involving commercial fraud, securities fraud, as well as investor broker disputes in jury trials, court trials and arbitrations around the country.
