Pro Bono or pro bono publico means “for the public good”. We, at MADARA LAW strongly believe that helping those who do not have access to justice is an integral part of our corporate values. We are committed to using our time and expertise to provide the same level of high-quality legal assistance on pro bono cases as in billable matters. We see pro bono as a core area in our company’s culture.
Our pro bono practice is dedicated to provide legal assistance to compelling stories and worthy causes that contribute to the greater good. Each year each member of our team takes on matters in a wide range of areas and provides legal services amounting to 40 hours attorney work annually. MADARA LAW’s pro bono work is carefully structured through the development of a written pro bono program and policy that identifies key areas in the community where our legal services would bring a change.
MADARA LAW also provides financial aid to people in need and non-governmental organizations which protect the environment and wild life. Additionally, we take extra effort to reduce our impact on the environment. This involves measures that increase paper recycling and reduce carbon, energy and paper usage.
Our pro bono work cases revolve around complex litigation matters with regard to ownership of property, medical misconduct and immigration. We also make a dedicated effort to offer pro bono legal services to young local artists and start-ups in various sectors of the software, cosmetics, neuroscience, marketing and fashion industries.
