We invest our time and skills to improve the communities in which we practice, by providing pro bono legal services and engaging in other civic and charitable activities.
Our commitment to pro bono work is mutually beneficial. We provide legal assistance to individuals of limited means and the organizations that serve them. At the same time, our lawyers gain invaluable experience and a greater understanding of the role of law in society.
- More than 90,000 hours were spent on pro bono representations, at a value to our pro bono clients of tens of millions of dollars.
- More than 75% of the firm's attorneys contributed at least 20 hours to a pro bono matter; representations span all practice groups and offices.
- Representations included more than 1,300 active matters, including nearly 600 new matters.
Our attorneys are encouraged to become involved in public service at the earliest stages of their careers. Because we support public interest work, many of our lawyers have developed close lawyer-client relationships with significant public interest organizations, often serving on their boards of directors.
