Locke Lord has a rich and longstanding tradition of giving back to our communities through pro bono projects. We consider it an obligation and part of our responsibility as lawyers and as human beings to provide legal services to people who cannot afford them. Our proactive Pro Bono Committee involves lawyers in our U.S. offices, and, in 2013 alone, they logged nearly 10,000 hours of pro bono assistance to clients across the United States.
From complex political asylum cases that seek safety for people persecuted in their native countries to simple tax matters that make huge differences in the lives of everyday people, we attack each case with commitment and high quality legal counsel. The American Bar Association Code of Professional Responsibility, Ethical Consideration EC 2-25, says: "Every lawyer, regardless of professional prominence or professional workload, should find time to participate in serving the disadvantaged." At Locke Lord, these are more than just words and, to our lawyers, pro bono truly matters.
