Pro Bono

After more than a century of active pro bono service, Stroock created the Public Service Project in March 2001 to centralize our pro bono efforts, involve more lawyers (especially non-litigators) in our diverse initiatives, and develop additional resources to support our pro bono commitments. Stroock attorneys are now deeply engaged in pro bono matters ranging from anti-trafficking and asylum, to education, homeless youth, non-profit development, prisoner’s rights, and small businesses opportunity.

Stroock partners and associates from all our offices and practice groups actively participate in the Public Service Project, and we encourage our attorneys to explore their own paths to public service.  Over half of our pro bono effort on a yearly basis comes from our transactional attorneys.  Because of this shared commitment to serving the less fortunate and improving access to justice, the Public Service Project is widely recognized by law schools, legal services providers, bar associations at all levels, and other law firms as a leader in the creation and delivery of innovative and efficient pro bono legal services.  

The following are core practice areas within the Public Service Project:

Community Economic Development

Disability Rights

Schools & Education

Women, Family & Children
