PRO BONO SERVICE WORK


Our firm performs significant pro bono service work each year. We also work to educate the non-profit community on legal matters by distributing informational resources and participating in continuing education events.

Because we still need to pay our bills, we are very selective in the pro bono projects we take on. At this time, we are considering projects with a focus on protecting and empowering vulnerable populations, upholding the constitution, and protecting reproductive rights. We do not take on start-ups unless they have been fiscally sponsored or can show a track record of success for at least two years. We also do not offer pro bono work for non-profits with budgets in excess of $250,000.

Decisions about pro bono projects are made in January of each year. If you wish to apply, please submit a brief description of your project, the impact you are making/hope to make in the community, and your current budget via email.
