Pro bono

Womble Carlyle has a long history of providing community service dating back to its beginnings in the late 1800s. Consistent with the Firm's long term commitment to community service, we have an active Pro Bono program in each of our offices. The Firm encourages its attorneys to fulfill their Pro Bono commitment by providing legal services to persons of limited means or to organizations whose purpose is to assist persons of limited means. In addition to Pro Bono work, many of our lawyers continue to be involved in a multitude of community service projects.

At the core of our Pro Bono program is the belief that law firms such as ours should be at the forefront of increasing access to legal services for the underprivileged. Not only does Pro Bono work provide a valuable public service, but it contributes to the personal and professional development of our attorneys. We are working to enhance the Firm's Pro Bono commitment and to create an atmosphere in which many of our lawyers will meet or exceed the Pro Bono goals set by the ABA and our local bar associations. The Firm has established a Pro Bono Committee to monitor the Firm's progress in reaching its Pro Bono goals and to ensure proper supervision and administration of the Pro Bono program.
