Graham graduated from UT Law in 2001 and joined the law firm of Latham & Watkins in Los Angeles where he worked as an associate from 2001 to 2006. While at Latham, he worked pro bono on behalf of Mario Rocha, a young Latino man then serving a double life sentence for a murder he did not commit. In "Unbillable Hours," Graham combines Rocha's compelling legal saga with the personal story of how the case changed Graham's understanding of his purpose as a lawyer. In addition to talking about his book, Graham will address the transformative power of pro bono legal work.
