Our program is managed by Elinor Leary, who serves as the Pro Bono Program Coordinator. She monitors work performed by attorneys, screens pro bono cases for conflicts and develops relationships with community groups involved with public-interest issues. To keep things running smoothly, team leaders provide the appropriate cues to individual attorneys, who are realistic about the demands of both their caseloads and their trial team calendar when choosing pro bono projects. All firm attorneys are required to complete a minimum of 15 hours per year on pro bono projects. As mentioned, we are very proud of our commitment to our community and our pro bono program. We hope to set an example for other firms of our size to follow suit with similar programs.
