Pro Bono

Pro Bono

Faegre Baker Daniels has a long-standing commitment to pro bono service. Our pro bono practice is centered on a shared vision of service to the community. The tangible manifestation of this shared vision is the dedication of firm resources to support individual lawyers pursuing their own passion for specific areas of pro bono practice.

Our varied pro bono work includes legal advocacy on behalf of people with disabilities, veterans, survivors of domestic violence, and children and families; representation of LGBT organizations and individuals; documentation of international human rights violations; provision of legal services to low-income clients in community-based clinics; representation of refugees and individuals seeking asylum; and provision of legal services to nonprofit agencies in our communities.

Faegre Baker Daniels is a founding member of the Law Firm Pro Bono Project and a signatory to the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge. Firms participate in the Challenge by committing annually to provide pro bono legal representation equivalent to at least 3 percent of their total billable hours, and to direct a majority of pro bono hours to serving persons of limited means.

Through pro bono service, our lawyers, paralegals and other professionals have numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth, and to be engaged in the communities in which we work and live.
