Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, both as a firm and through our individual lawyers, has a long and distinguished history of involvement in, and strong commitment to, the communities where our lawyers live and practice. Our commitment to civic, charitable and community service is of vital importance to our firm and its attorneys and staff.
Part of this involvement in and commitment to our communities is recognized and encouraged through the firm’s Pro Bono program. All lawyers have an ethical obligation to help address the unmet legal needs of indigent individuals and charitable institutions. Accordingly, the firm expects its lawyers to devote a significant amount of time to Pro Bono work. The firm is the only Alabama based firm that is a member of the Pro Bono Institute and is a challenge member of the Pro Bono Institute’s Law Firm Pro Bono Project. As such, the firm aspires to devote three percent of firm billable hours to pro bono matters.
The firm has adopted a Pro Bono policy to encourage all of the firm’s lawyers to do Pro Bono work and to provide formal administrative support for our Pro Bono work. Our Pro Bono service includes representation of indigent individuals and non-profit organizations, and involvement in matters of broad public concern. The firm's pro bono activities are overseen by our Pro Bono Committee, which is charged with promoting participation in Pro Bono activities, coordinating those activities, and approving Pro Bono representations.
