Justice is what love looks like in public.
~ Dr. Cornel West

Why Do Pro Bono?

As attorneys we are asked to “seek improvement of the law, access to the legal system, the administration of justice. You have a responsibility to give service to those unable to pay by aspiring “to render at least 50 hours of pro bono publico legal services per year.” Serving your community is a duty and source of satisfaction. You can improve the law and increase access to equal justice for all people.
