Foster Garvey has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the community through direct pro bono legal advocacy, community service, charitable contributions and service on nonprofit boards of directors. Pro bono was deeply ingrained in the cultures of both legacy firms, Foster Pepper and Garvey Schubert Barer, and is an essential component of the culture at Foster Garvey.
The firm strongly encourages participation by its attorneys in public service activities and those that will help represent individuals and organizations that do not have equal access to justice. Our work has helped individuals in cases spanning 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, Foster Garvey attorneys from all practices and with all levels of experience contribute more than 3,000 hours of pro bono time to organizations and individuals in the regions we work. Pro bono service is more than a commitment for Foster Garvey; it is an enduring tradition and part of the firm’s culture.
