“Our commitment to pro bono is part of the DNA of the Firm. Ultimately we became lawyers because values like justice and equality and fairness mattered to us, and the defense of the individual mattered to us, and it really is an opportunity for us to bring those abstract principles into the real lives of real people.”
—Joseph M. Leccese
Chairman of the Firm

“I think that [pro bono] is the test of a great firm – to demonstrate that we can be an outstanding corporation, outstanding business, but also a very responsible member of our profession.”
—Scott Harshbarger
Chair, Pro Bono Initiative Committee
