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. 43 ranking on the AmLaw 2013 Pro Bono Scorecard — an exceptional improvement over the past six years that is the direct 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. The firm responded to the challenge in a big way: In 2012 alone, our attorneys contributed nearly 50,000 hours to pro bono service.
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.
