At Meyer Suozzi, we believe that pro bono service is an important element of a lawyers' professional responsibility. The legal profession possesses unique skills and abilities that allow us to serve the disadvantaged and promote public interests in ways that no other profession can. We recognize this institutional obligation and encourage our lawyers to engage in pro bono activities on behalf of persons and organizations of limited means.
Meyer Suozzi's commitment to pro bono activities is a firm-wide commitment and we encourage members, associates and of counsel attorneys to engage in pro bono activities to help fulfill this obligation.
In recognition of the special needs of the poor and underprivileged for legal services, we believe that our pro bono activities should be particularly focused on providing access to the justice system for persons otherwise unable to afford it. Accordingly, we strive to deliver legal services on a pro bono basis to persons of limited means or to charitable, religious, civic, community, governmental and educational organizations.
We are proud of our commitment to our pro bono practice, here are but a few of our recent accomplishments:
