Serve

Posted by Timothy P. PolishanApr 18, 2022

Any law firm can be great because any firm can serve humanity.

To do so, a firm needs to be innovative, creative, and open to new ways of balancing their lawyers' time and work.

This means more than traditional pro bono legal work. It means broader community service by helping:

disadvantaged segments of society; charities; religious groups; civic and community organizations; displaced persons from within and without our borders; public service clubs; other professional, industry and trade groups; the homeless; the imprisoned; those whose who are physically or mentally ill, injured or disabled; unemployed persons and bankrupted businesses; the hungry; the illiterate; the poor; and the marginalized, lonely, ignored and maligned.

Firms can also help support the legal needs of public servants in the sectors of: personal privacy; the arts; job training; financial and personal security; education; and scientific research and development.
