More than a responsibility: a partnership

We join with community organizations to provide time, skills and leadership to serve those in need.

Defending liberty and protecting justice are the guiding principles of the American Bar Association. As members of the bar, our attorneys are steered by these values in their daily practice of law — whether serving our own clients or individuals and organizations in our communities lacking the resources for legal representation.

Volunteering from Day One

Our Pro Bono Committee is central to the overall mission of Burns White. We partner with community-based organizations in need of legal representation, matching needs with the interests of attorneys in the firm. From the first day of employment at Burns White, our attorneys are encouraged to become active members of the community, and to devote a percentage of their time to pro bono representation. We believe that building strong ties in our communities enriches our lives and the lives of those we touch.
