Pro Bono and Comunity Service
Our commitment to pro bono legal work arises from our conviction that pro bono work is a professional obligation of our firm and our lawyers to the communities in which we practice. Pro bono work not only contributes to the public welfare but also develops our lawyers as leaders in law and in public service.
Our pro bono service includes counseling and representation of indigent clients. At any given time, our attorneys are actively engaged in a number of pro bono and community activities, including serving as mentors to high school students and routinely volunteering at local soup kitchens. We provide the same outstanding legal counseling and representation for our pro bono clients that all of our clients expect and deserve.
One of our attorneys is a founding member and former President of the Nigerian Lawyers Association and also served as a member of the Association’s Board of Directors. He also serves as member on the Board of Directors of several community-based organizations, including the Restoring Hope Foundation, Inc., a New York-based not-for-profit organization that provides amenities for disadvantaged youths. He has also served, by appointment of the United States Secretary of the Treasury, on the Tax Advocacy Panel, an advisory panel established to provide recommendations for Internal Revenue Service improvement.
Another of our attorneys is also a founding member and was former head of the African Youth Organization, a not-for-profit organization that provides mentoring and support for students of African origin.
