Pro Bono

A Tradition of Pro Bono Practice

Marten strongly encourages attorneys and staff to engage in meaningful pro bono work. Being a lawyer provides significant advantages in our society—those privileges come with commensurate responsibilities.

Marten attorneys pursue many pro bono projects. Approved pro bono hours are credited, up to 100 hours, toward the billable goal for lawyers with the firm. Attorneys may bring their own projects to the firm or can participate in existing projects. We often partner with national and local organizations to maximize our impact. We have longstanding partnerships in an array of pro bono areas, including: Affordable Housing, Gun Violence Prevention, Immigration, Environmental Justice, and Voter Suppression. Approved pro bono work will by no means be limited to these topic areas. Marten lawyers and staff are encouraged to voice their desire to work on other issues, so the firm can best support them.
