Throughout his career, Bashman has accepted pro bono appointments from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in a wide variety of cases. In recent years, the Third Circuit has asked Bashman to handle three particularly high-profile, challenging, and interesting pro bono appointments.

After the Third Circuit received briefing and heard oral argument from Bashman in those three cases, the side of the case that Bashman was appointed to represent emerged victorious each time. And in three different published opinions, the Third Circuit has praised Bashman for the high quality of the briefing and oral advocacy he provided to the court.

In addition to accepting pure pro bono appointments from the Third Circuit in civil appeals, Bashman also occasionally accepts reduced-fee appellate appointments from that court under the Criminal Justice Act.

Bashman’s goal in pro bono cases is to provide his clients and the appellate court with the same high-quality representation and work product that he provides for his paying clients. By clicking on the case names that follow, you can access online the appellate briefs that Bashman filed in the Third Circuit in the three high-profile pro bono cases mentioned above: Zucker v. Westinghouse; In re Robert B. Surrick; and Spruill v. Rosemeyer.
