San Diego Pro-Bono Attorney Program

The Law Offices of Brian R. Mason strives to be an important contributor to the San Diego community.  In 2007, Attorney Brian Mason received a pro-bono honors award for contributing more than 300 hours to indigent defendants in multiple first degree homicide cases.


Currently, the Law Offices of Brian R. Mason offers a pro-bono program for those with special circumstances.  We strive to take a minimum of five cases per year for free of legal charge.


To qualify for the pro-bono program, an individual or family must be in need of legal services offered by our firm, and they must be going through a financial, emotional and/or physical hardhsip (see disclaimer below).  Additionally, our office provides discounted rates and payment plans.
