United States: Proskauer Praised For Pro Bono Service By New York’s Empire State Counsel
Last Updated: August 8 2017

July 13, 2017 (NEW YORK) – The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) has recognized Proskauer for its lawyers' significant pro bono contributions.

The Empire State Counsel honored 64 Proskauer lawyers for their pro bono work on behalf of low-income New Yorkers and community groups that promote justice and equality. Together, these lawyers contributed nearly 12,000 hours to pro bono matters last year.

The Empire State Counsel program was created in 2006 to give special recognition to NYSBA members who provide 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services in a calendar year. The program celebrates the idea that pro bono service by qualified lawyers can both change the lives of those unable to afford counsel and help them achieve justice.
