PRO BONO STATEMENT
We are aware of the difficulties some members of our community face in accessing the justice system and legal counsel. As attorneys, we are in a unique position to assist them, and we have the ethical commitment to take on pro bono work to afford them that access. Consequently, we foster pro bono work among our attorneys as part of the obligations of the profession, and we recognize those who engage in such activities.
We assist pro bono clients in areas of law where assistance may be lacking. We offer pro bono services to persons or groups with limited resources or in a vulnerable or socially marginal situation, as well as to nongovernmental organizations that assist them.
We provide our pro bono clients with the same quality professional service as all our other clients.
Our pro bono services are free of charge. Pro bono clients are responsible for the expenses necessary in connection with the pro bono services, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Pro Bono Committee.
Direction and coordination of pro bono work, as well as determination of resources available for pro bono cases, rest with the FERRERE pro bono committee, whose members are associates and coordinating partners.
