Foley is committed to providing meaningful pro bono opportunities for our attorneys and quality legal services to those who most need our help.
Our commitment to conscience and community — established by our founding partners and still a core value to this day — includes providing quality pro bono legal services that ensure every person and organization, regardless of financial means, has access to the justice system.
We are extremely proud of our No. 36 ranking on The American Lawyer (AmLaw) 2012 Pro Bono Scorecard — an 83-spot jump since 2007.
This exceptional improvement is the result of a major initiative to revitalize our dedication to pro bono service and re-establish Foley among the top pro bono firms in the country. Our attorneys and staff responded to the challenge in a big way: In less than four years, we increased our total annual pro bono hours by 192 percent and more than doubled the number of attorneys performing pro bono work.
And, as is often the case, in giving we also receive: Our attorneys gain not only professional experience through exposure to areas of law, procedures, and clients not often available in their day-to-day work, but also a deep, personal satisfaction that comes from achieving justice for those who otherwise would have been powerless to protect their legal rights.
