At Foster Garvey, we take pride in our tradition of giving back to the community through pro bono legal advocacy, community service, and charitable contributions. Pro bono work is deeply ingrained in our culture, dating back to the legacies of both Foster Pepper and Garvey Schubert Barer.
We strongly encourage our attorneys to participate in public service activities and to represent individuals and organizations that do not have equal access to justice. Our pro bono work covers a wide range of cases, from high-profile criminal justice reform to individual representation of low-income individuals, refugees and immigrants, those seeking clemency, and veterans, among many others.
Each year, our attorneys across all practices and levels of experience contribute over 3,000 hours of pro bono time to organizations and individuals in the regions we serve. Pro bono service is more than just a commitment for us; it is an enduring tradition and an essential part of our firm's culture.
