The Power of Pro Bono

“Equality before the law in a true democracy is a matter of right. It cannot be a matter of charity or favor or of grace or of discretion.”

-U.S. Supreme Court Justice Wiley Rutledge

Gavel Attorneys cite various reasons for their personal commitment to pro bono service. Attorneys do pro bono because they are committed to preserving the core principles of our justice system and they realize that unrepresented people often are not afforded the opportunity to fully realize these ideals. Attorneys alone have the privilege of legal training and responsibility to preserve the core principles of our justice system through pro bono legal service, because nobody else can.

Pro bono service enriches communities, empowers people out of poverty, and provides the personal satisfaction that comes from helping someone in need. Pro bono attorneys have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of clients who have nowhere else to turn for assistance. Even the most simple pro bono experience can make a real impact. For example, writing a will for a terminally ill client provides peace of mind and stability at a family’s most vulnerable moment.

Pro bono service also provides attorneys with opportunities for professional development. New and experienced attorneys alike seek out pro bono opportunities that allow them to utilize their skills to make an impact in today’s world. Pro bono helps attorneys develop and hone legal skills through a referral system that provides ongoing support and assistance and free CLE training.
