Strong For Those In Need
Pro bono publico means for the public good. From Day One, we challenged ourselves to live up to this phrase; to create a law firm that’s about forming strong, long-lasting relationships and working hard to improve the communities that surround us. We’ve always believed we could make a positive difference. More than twenty years ago, we were the first DC-based firm to elect a full-time public service partner and we've twice been honored as Pro Bono Firm of the Year in Washington, D.C. Today, our lawyers contribute more than 35,000 hours in pro bono legal services annually to the indigent and suffering in our local communities and around the world. And that's not counting the untold hours our professional staff add to the effort. We take pride in the variety of work we do and the relationships and development opportunities pro bono provides for our attorneys. But we focus on giving a voice to those who might not otherwise be heard: the homeless, children, immigrants, individuals seeking justice in the criminal system, and victims of domestic violence. Pro bono is for the good of all those in need. Because in helping others, we also help ourselves.
