Community / Pro Bono

We believe a law firm exists to serve both its clients and its community. That’s why we provide extensive pro bono legal services to deserving individuals and institutions, as well as donating our time and financial resources to a wide range of professional, community and nonprofit organizations. 

And we back our commitment in real and meaningful ways, including recognizing and rewarding employees for their contributions during review. It’s part of a firm-wide philosophy of growing by giving back. And working to serve the people we’re proud to call friends, and places we’re proud to call home.
