Pro Bono

At Neal Gerber Eisenberg, pro bono work is a cornerstone of our mission. Stepping beyond our day-to-day practice not only sharpens and extends our legal skills, it also increases our engagement with the communities in which we live and work.

The firm has established the goals that each of the firm’s attorneys will devote at least 50 hours per year to pro bono, and that the firm averages at least 50 hours of pro bono service per year per attorney. All associate hours spent on approved pro bono work count as billable time.

To facilitate achieving these goals, the firm has established “preferred provider” relationships with four nonprofit organizations that provide many opportunities for transactional and litigation pro bono work. But, rather than create a one-size-fits-all program, we also reinforce our emphasis on entrepreneurship. Attorneys are encouraged to go outside this network and bring their own pro bono matters. These projects are self-directed and spearheaded by an individual or group of individuals who share a passion about a certain cause of organization.
