Our Firm

Pro Bono & Public Service

Community involvement

The obligation to the community we feel our lawyers have is broader than just the legal work we do. Segal McCambridge attorneys have a professional responsibility to contribute their time, skill and resources to provide legal services to those who do not have access to attorneys or otherwise cannot afford legal representation. Segal McCambridge's Pro Bono & Public Service Committee's (PBPSC) mission is to encourage, support, facilitate and recognize our attorneys in their endeavors to serve their communities through pro bono legal work.

In furtherance of this mission, the PBPSC provides training and practice support, information about pro bono opportunities, and other relevant information and resources to encourage our attorneys to provide pro bono services to those less fortunate. The PBPSC also endeavors to foster longstanding relationships with pro bono and public service agencies in the communities surrounding each office to benefit the public, the firm and the organization. The PBPSC also encourages attorneys to contribute time to community service projects that might not fit the definition of legal pro bono work, but are nonetheless important to our society.

Pro Bono and Public Service Committee

The Pro Bono and Public Service Committee is charged with promoting the firm's pro bono efforts and increasing our commitment to pro bono and community service. The PBPSC meets monthly and establishes community service policies on a firm-wide basis. The PBPSC is composed of members from several of our offices, including the following:
