Letter from the Pro Bono Committee Chair
Dear Friends of the Firm,
The American Bar Association, in its comments to Rule 6.1 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, states: "Every lawyer, regardless of professional prominence or professional workload, has a responsibility to provide legal services to those unable to pay, and personal involvement in the problems of the disadvantaged can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the life of a lawyer."
At Allen Matkins, we take this responsibility to our community seriously. Allen Matkins attorneys and staff across all of our offices work on pro bono matters in various areas of public interest law, including adoption proceedings, asylum and immigration, domestic violence, military service member representation, and representation of not-for-profit organizations in corporate and real estate transactions.
We are proud not only of the excellent legal work we do for our pro bono clients, but also our relationships with our clients and with our partner agencies, public interest organizations that refer matters to us and often work with us on individual matters. These organizations provide tremendous support to those most in need, and we are honored to work alongside them.
We look forward to continuing to grow our pro bono program at Allen Matkins and supporting our attorneys and staff, and our partner public interest agencies, whose commitment makes our pro bono program a success.
Emily Lane Murray
Chair, Pro Bono Committee
