2. Whitney Untiedt Puts the “Pro” in Pro Bono

May the Record Reflect

In Episode 2 of NITA’s recognition of the National Celebration of Pro Bono here on the podcast, we are joined by Whitney Untiedt. Whitney is an attorney with Freidin|Brown in Miami, where she handles whistleblower and false claims actions, medical malpractice, and catastrophic injury cases. Previously, Whitney managed the national, firmwide pro bono practice at an AmLaw 100 firm and mobilized large-scale legal efforts in response to natural disasters, the unconstitutional incarceration of juveniles, and the immigration enforcement crisis. Whitney is also NITA program director and will join our Board of Trustees in January 2020.
