Our Commitment to Pro Bono

We are thrilled to share with you our Pro Bono Video which emphasizes our motto of "Doing Well, by Doing Good" and highlights our deeply-rooted commitment to the Pro Bono Initiative and provision of legal services to the disadvantaged and the poor. We are proud to recognize the phenomenal efforts and commitment of our colleagues who contribute their time and talents to organizations and individuals in need of legal assistance. We look forward to sharing more of these projects and experiences with you as the firm continues to serve the needs of our clients and our communities around the world.  

 
"Our commitment to pro bono is part of the DNA of the Firm. Ultimately we became lawyers because values like justice and equality and fairness mattered to us, and the defense of the individual mattered to us, and it really is an opportunity for us to bring those abstract principles into the real lives of real people."
Joseph M. Leccese
Chairman of the Firm
 
"I think that [pro bono] is the test of a great firm – to demonstrate that we can be an outstanding corporation, outstanding business, but also a very responsible member of our profession."
Scott Harshbarger
Chair, Pro Bono Initiative Committee
