Our Firm believes that lawyers have a duty to devote their time to serve the society in a positive way; therefore, support for pro bono activity is our culture and one of our core values.
We believe not only in a lawyer’s social responsibility, but that we all benefit when the legal system is accessible to everyone. From day one, we encourage those at the Firm to find a cause of their interest that could be matched to legal needs in our community.
Our pro bono work is diverse and far-reaching. It includes a wide variety of charitable endeavors related to immigration and asylum; nonprofit incorporation, tax exemption and operations; civil litigation; administrative hearings; life planning; criminal matters; community development; veterans’ issues; and cases involving domestic violence survivors.
Every lawyer within our organization is expected to support this initiative and is encouraged in every possible way to be involved in pro bono work, at least in one pro bono matter per year. Moreover, all Firm’s client work, including pro bono, is taken into account in performance evaluation. The existence of an appropriate contribution to the Firm’s pro bono activities is also a positive factor when considering candidates for promotion.
